So sad and shocked to hear of Aunt Ref's passing. My heart felt sympathy to those left behind. She always had a wonderful smile and a kind word for me. Ill miss her.

Dearest Uncle Sam, Sammy and Martha, the passing of my precious Aunt Reff is just surreal to me. She will always live on in my heart; her kindness and her special way of teaching me to persevere will always be a part of me. I thank her for that; I thank her for all the times she was my second mother when I would stay at her house, for all the delicious food I remember smelled and tasted so wonderfully; for all the fun vacations our families had together, the picnics, the weddings; heck, we did everything together. And for this, we are all so specially blessed! Aunt Reff, you are my forever Angel. God Bless You and Keep You In His Arms Forever!!! I'm sure Lucille, and my Dad, and Grandma Lucy is also there, welcoming her home.

Dear Uncle Sam, Sammy and Martha: I am so sorry of the passing of MY AUNT REFF! She is an amazing, loving wife, mother, sister, aunt and grand mother. My heart aches that I cannot be there for you. I love her so very much and am so very lucky she was my God-mother! I can only hope to show the love to my Godchildren she showed to me. Love you so much! xoxoxox

Sam - We just seen in the paper about your mom. We loved her so much, she always had a big smile on her face and would stop and talk to you. Jeff cried while reading the obituary remembering all the good times spent with her, starting in grade school. Sam our heart goes out to you and you family. May our Lord Jesus Christ lay his loving hand on your family. He has gained one lady with such a huge smile and great stories of everything she has done for others.
