  1. She was the best Aunt a niece could have. She was my Aunt “Tookie”. I will miss the long telephone conversations about what was going on in my life and what was going on in hers. She was my substitute mother that always seemed to know the right time to call me since the passing of my mother 22 years ago. She was a little woman with a very big heart and I loved and respected her very much. I will miss your laugh and your good advice. She was also a “force to be reckoned with” if you ever crossed her. She loved her family very much and her grand children were her pride and joy. I miss you Aunt Tookie. Uncle James, Mark, Cord, and Kevin I love you guys and if ever you need me for anything please let me know.

For several years we used to walk together EVERY evening, getting our exercise and chatting, then there was all of the birthday parties for Shelly & Wes and April , The many Valero Company picnics, I was always glad to see Tookie and James there to hang out with and the Countless phone conversations, where we solved all of the worlds problems!!! lol Tookie, I will never forget you, and I will miss you. You were one of my best friends for many years!!! <3
