Ann, so sorry to hear about your mom. She was a wonderful lady. I remember all the things we did and she knew but Marshall didnt. She was a true inspiration and I know she will truly be missed but she will always be on your shoulder guiding you in the right direction. I have precious memories of us that live in my heart always. Just know that she lives on in you as you go thru life. Love always, Your old friend Sally Patin Camacho

Ann, Shelli & Destin, Thanks for sharing MomaNita with me after losing my own. You 3 were her life, along with Mamou an Earnestine..! I must say she was bold, bright & out spoken or as us coonssses say a co-Mere'. Hated to see her go, but hated to see her in the situation she was in. She's now carrying on ruling the rouse out in Heaven. My parents burial slot reads, To Live In Hearts We Leave Behind Is Not To Die so keep her memory alive, and know one day we'll catch up on lost time!! Love you much!! Genie
