Even though I know you're in a better place and with your beloved Floyd I can't help but wish you were still here. I will miss you terribly and will remember you fondly and always love you. Rest peacefully my dear friend.

Tiny and I go a long way back, we went to school together, went on dates together , spent many sleep overs together, she was like a sister to me and I to her, we shared our dreams and life to each other,When we got married we went our different direction but in later years we got back together again, what a time we had catching up on old times, She was a blessing to all , loved every body and would help any body always there when needed or not My family all loved them very much Yes as her and I both said 4 days before she went home to be with Jesus, if we do not see each other here on earth we will see each other in Heaven, well Tiny it looks like Heaven will be our meeting place until we meet again love always RIP Angel Mae
