Momma my love, may you be under the wings of angels, guiding you to your destination.- love your children

Shirleen, as a sister although u were a force to be reckoned with. You never turned your back on us anytime we needed you. You were always there with no complaints and we love you, we miss you. May we always remember you until we meet again.

Grandma "Ma Barker"  You were undeniably one unique soul, you were loving,out spoken, but most of all you were a true wild card loved by many, viewed differently at different times of her life but one thing I can honestly say is she didn't play when it came to her family. We love you Grandma.

Momma, I thank God for the time He allowed you to be here with us. You were the best Mother you can be to us. Life wasn't always easy but you always made due with what you had. I can't remember a time you gave up on us, even when times got rough you were strong enough to with stand "Thank you Mamma". I'm not ready to  say good bye I know how lucky we were to have had you in our lives. {I can truly say there is no love like your mother's love}
