    I remember when you kept me, Crystal and your crew in line at church on Sundays. You were always fair as a cousin and a person. My heart just melted when I found out that you left us but we knew that God wanted your presence with Him. I will always cherish the love and attention that you have shown me over the years and always keep your memories. I see your heart and love in Gaston, Corlessa, and Dawnette. Be strong my cousins because your Guardian Angel in heaven has your back. Love you all!

  • I have been following your posts for some time; your joeurny and the remarkable women you meet, like Rita, is why I continue. I was so happy to see you and your “regulars” on the Morning Show. I am approaching 50 and love clothes and textures and accessories, in my own funcky way. I am ever so delighted to see that there are other women who believe that we can continue to be more of ourselves as the years come. Peace. Brianne
