“Gwen” as she liked to be called, was so full of love, laughter and life. One of her signature phrases that everyone would love to hear her say was “Oh Nooooo”…

Altadena California was home for Gwen, but she lived in Arizona collectively for 17 yrs. She loved the outdoors. She enjoyed Fishing, Camping, Bowling, playing Pool, Swimming, listening to music, dancing and spending time with family and friends. She was a polite, nurturing, strong woman, who was loved dearly.

Gwen made a difference in many lives. She loved working with children and helping people. From driving school buses, to running group homes for abused and neglected children, to being a foster parent and owning a childcare business; she did it all. In her latter years, she took care of adults with disabilities in her own home. That was her way of showing unconditional love to those who needed it most.

Gwen was preceded in death by her Father Stanley Sr, Mother Florine and older Brother James. She leaves behind to forever cherish her memory, 4 children; Shantell, Stephanie, Alprenice and Stacy. A daughter by blessing Aleiah, 10 Grand children, 1 Great Grandson Jayce, Brother Stanley Jr, Sister Andrea, Sister by blessing Crystal, Step Mother Josephine, Step Brother Robbie, 103 year old Aunt “Na Na” and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who became family over the years.

Gwen would not want anyone to be sad for her, but to celebrate her. They say

“Our Fingerprints Don’t Fade From The Lives We’ve Touched” and she will NEVER be forgotten!

    Gwen was caring, loving and nurturing person, her heart was HUGE, always helping was her way. She loved her family with all of her heart, there was nothing she wouldn’t do for family and friends. Gwen was my rock here in Arizona, I was elated when she moved back to THIS GOD FORSAKEN DESERT, she was happy, where she made her home. Gwen was a blessing to know and to be her friend, cause I HAD A TRUE FRIEND IN GWENDOLYN BROWN. Good Bye Gweenie, til we meet again❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

    To be chosen to be loved is priceless. Thank you mommy for choosing to love me so dearly.
    Forever your Lay Lay

    While I never had the opportunity to meet Gwen in person, I called her Mom. Gwen was beautiful and her personality was something that captured my heart immediately. Through Stacy, I saw her strengths and felt the love they both shared for one another. She reminded me of my mother with her strong personality and funny energy. It was a pleasure to be a part of Gwen’s life and an honor to put a smile upon her face with the few beautiful things I sent to her. She more often placed a smile upon my face. 🙂 May you rest peacefully pretty lady. You are missed!!!

    Hey my beautiful, blessing…my Miss Pretty. It’s been a very long 21 days without you Mommy. I miss you so much my blessing. More than words can ever express. Mommy we use to talk alot about important things and with your fight and I thank you again and a final time for trusting me. You trusted me to fight for you, to make decisions for you, to love you, to pray over you, to have your best interest at heart. You trusted me with your life and I cannot thank you enough. Daily I ask myself, “now what”…I still have your TV on in your room. Funny thing is, today I noticed the TV was off 🤔 hmmmm I didn’t turn it off. I think that was you, but I’m not ready Mommy so I turned it back on. 😔 Mommy I will treasure our memories and you will be with me always every step of the way. That’s why I put your name on my foot. I knew you would always walk with me. Sweet eternal dreams my Blessing

    Hi Mommy! It’s Stacy…again. I’m having a sad day thinking about how much I miss you. I was looking at this lady on TV play tennis and her legs reminded me of yours. Remember how much you use to love your legs and how strong they were? Mom you have left me with so very many memories. I thank you so much for that. I couldn’t have asked for a better Mother. I miss you so much and I love you. I pray that you are resting peacefully my Blessing. Today makes 7 weeks. I’m still NOT okay 😪🙏🏾

  23. Stacy (Tootie) says:

    Mom it has been a very very long 3 months without you. I just turned 41 on Sunday. You would be happy to know that I didn’t sit home sad all day. I thought about it but I knew that wouldn’t be good and you wouldn’t want that for me. Dolla misses you. I catch him coming out of your room sometimes. This place is not the same without you. I don’t even want to live here anymore. Mom I pray that your soul is at peace, I pray that you are watching over me and guiding me as you always have. Please be the set of footprints that carry me when I don’t have the strength to carry myself. 🙏🏾 I love you for an eternity Mommy. I will always be your keeper 💚

  35. Stacy says:

    I just wasn’t ready Mom. I just wasn’t ready. I miss you so very much. What I wouldn’t give to have you back here with me and well. Missing you and needing you 💔🙏🏾

    • Stacy says:

      Hi Mom! I was thinking about you today. Well I think about you everyday as I told you before. Not having you in my life is just so unfair. No matter the age, I will never outgrow loving and needing you. Thank you for all of the wonderful memories and great childhood. There is nothing I would change when it comes to having you as my Mom. I pray you are in peace Mommy 🙏🏾…I’m not but I am working on it 🐢 I love you my blessing!

  36. Stacy says:

  37. Stacy says:

    Hi Mommy it’s me again…having one of those moments where I wish I could just lay on your chest like I use too. Hold your hand, massage your temples, prepare you for bed. Kissing your forehead and earing your puckers in my ear i miss the most. I wish things were different Mommy. I miss you. Your babygirl Tootie-

  38. Tootie says:

    Hi Mom, it’s been 8 long months. I miss you and I love you. Every time I catch 1:11 I say “hi mom”…mi.a I said it before, 40 years was not long enough for me. The others had you longer 😔💔

  39. Tootie says:

    I love you and I am thinking about you. 🙏🏾💔

  40. Tootie says:

    Hi Mommy! You’ve been on my mind a lot lately. I’m sorry you suffered so long and all I wanted was to keep you here with me. I love you My Blessing. You’re alive within me forever and a day. Forever my Miss Pretty 🐢 💚

  41. Tootie says:

    I still can’t believe you’re gone 💔 😔 😢 Goodnight my Blessing…no more appointments Mommy. You’ll never be out of sight out of mind when it comes to me. 🙏🏾💚 I was born for you Mommy

  42. Your Tootie says:

    Feel like I am constantly saying the same thing Mom. Everytime I see your picture here, I am in disbelief. My mind is not accepting what my eyes are seeing. I refuse to say that you’re in a better place because I know you weren’t ready to go. I know you weren’t tired of fighting…what I will say is, you nolonger have to deal with not being able to be yourself. Not being able to eat your Menudo, drive your car, play pool, go bowling, cook, eat what you want. You no longer have to be uncomfortable. I’m just so so very sorry that this is the way life turned out for us. I love you so much and I pray that I get to feel your presence and see you again one day. I don’t know what it’s like when you die, but I sure hope I’ll be with you when that time comes Mommy. I miss you my blessing. Dolla misses you. Aunty Andrea and Azzy. Goodnight my Blessing 😙💚💔

  43. Your Tootie Bug says:

    My Dear Beautiful Mother. It has been almost a year without you and still unbelievable. How unfair. I hate not having you here. I hate even more what you went through. I know I’m constantly saying the same thing, but I just can’t help how I am feeling. I’m only 41, what am I suppose to do without you? Whose here to love me the way you did. I don’t deal with any of the people who turned their backs on you. Mommy with you being sick, I really learned what family really means. That is NOTHING. I got you though Mom. In life and in death. I got you. Just the two of us. You’ll be with me forever Mommy just as I promised. I miss you and love you my Blessing.

  44. Your Tootie says:

    Hi my Blessing, my Miss Pretty…it’s been a very very very long 10 months without your beautiful face. Today you’ve been on my mind so much. I was telling Tajh today “you love me, you love me,”…I told him I use to ask you that all the time. He smiled. I love you and I miss you and you will never be forgotten Mom. Rest in peace Mommy 💔

  45. Your Tootie says:

    My beloved Mother…I miss you so very much. Wish I could bring you back healthy and vibrant as ever. I. So sorry Mom that this happened to you. You were missed on Thanksgiving but I know you were with me 💚 no more appointments Mommy. I love you

  46. Your Tootie says:

    Everytime my thoughts of you get to where I just can’t fathom, I come here. Once here seeing your picture doesn’t help. Mom I miss you so very much. There is so much more I wanted to enjoy with you. I have no family without you. Everyone who left you and put themselves before you, I’ve cut them off forever…and im okay with that. 💚 I love you my blessing. Goodnight

  47. Your Tootie says:

    Mommy I would give anything to just hold your hand again. I need you. I miss you 😔 Merry Christmas in heaven Mommy

  48. Your Tootie says:

    Hi Mommy, Happy New Year Ms. Pretty. 💚 Missing you more and more each day.

  49. Your Tootie says:

    Mommy today is Wednesday January 11th at 1230 am and I am up thinking about you. I miss you terribly..it’s your birthday Mommy. You would be 67 years old today. I bought you some beautiful Balloons and a greeting card. I wish you were with me. I miss hearing you call me Tootie. I wanna feed you ice cream and came today. Life is so unfair. I’m beyond lost without you. Happy Heavenly Birthday Mommy #111 💚

  50. Your Tootie says:

    Happy Birthday my Blessing…my Miss Pretty

  51. Your Tootie says:

    Mommy it has been 363 days since I’ve felt your skin. Smelled your sweet scent, held your hands, kissed your forehead, been able to tell you in person how blessed I am to have you. It’s almost a year and it is not better. I am constantly hoping this is all a dream. Almost a year without my blessing. I am speechless

  52. Your Tootie says:

    Mommy! Mommy! It’s been 1 year and 4 days! I wish I could bring you back healthy and happy. I’m so very sorry Mommy that this happened to you. I’m even more sorry that in the end, things weren’t the way they should have been with others. But Mom as I told you, it’s just me and you! I got you Mom and I always will have you. I love you. Rest Peacefully my Blessing

  53. Your Tootie says:

    Hi Mommy, 😔 I miss you

  54. Your Tootie says:

  55. Your Tootie says:

    Hi my beautiful Mother. You’ve been on my mind a lot. So much has happen in such little time. I just want you to know that you will NEVER be forgotten. I wish you were here for me to hold your hand and take care of you. Miss watching Criminal Minds with you and Court shows. Until We meet again, I’ll be missing you my blessing 💚🙏🏾

I miss your smell, your touch, you’re smile! I’ll never understand why any of this happened to such a beautiful strong loving person such as yourself. Missing you terribly!

  59. Your Baby Girl Stacy...Your Tootie says:

    Mom, my 1st Love! My 1st hug, my 1st kiss on the cheek, all from you! Mom you’re my everything. You always have been. I remember people would say that you spoiled me. Well if that’s the case, I pray I was able to spoil you in return. I pray that you felt an abundance of love from me. It wasn’t easy Mommy but we did it! We did it! You did it Mommy! You held on as long as you could and I love you forever and a day for that. Mom you are my blessing always and forever. My forever Miss Pretty

  60. Tootie says:

    Just waiting for the day that it doesn’t hurt so bad. I’ve thought about writing you many many times over the last 2 weeks, especially on my birthday but I stopped myself. Mom this hurts so bad. The void I feel is indescribable. I’m angry! I’m sad and miss you so much. Like a bad dream

  61. Tootie says:

    Mommy I miss you 😔🥺😪💔

  62. Your Tootie Bug says:

    Hi Mommy! Happy Mother’s Day my Blessing! This is the 2nd Mother’s Day without you and it was a tough one for sure! Lots of tears and loneliness not having you here to guide me and tell me I’m doing a great job! I watched a lot of videos of you today. Some of them made me laugh. Mom it was such a blessing to have all the time I had with you towards the end of your life! It was my honor to care for you and to give you the LOVE YOU DESERVED. I pray that I am making you proud. I love you today and forever 🐢💚🐢

I’d definitely be trying to get you that Toyota Solara that you love so much. ❤️❤️❤️ kisses Mommy. Be back soon 💚💚💚💚💚

  66. Your Tootie Bug says:

    All these minutes, moments, days, months, hours, seconds and situations come and go and you’re still not here. Mom for the life of me I can’t figure out how and why this happened to you. Whose lesson was this… they say and you use to say everything happens for a reason but I refuse to believe that when it comes to this 😪 I wish you were here and well! I love and miss you dearly. – Stacy

  67. Your Tootie Bug says:

    Sigh……. 😔💔

  68. Your Tootie Bug says:

    Hi Mommy…writing you here is starting not to help me feel better about you being gone. I miss you so much and so bad. 😢 Time is just going and going but you’re still not here. The worst feeling ever

  69. Your Tootie Bug says:

    I seriously still cannot believe that YOU have an obituary Mom. I miss you so much. It’s just me out here basically. No siblings or nothing. Me Azzy and aunty Andrea is all I have me that you’re gone. You’re forever in my mind and heart Mommy…❤️ I love you my blessing 😘

  70. Your Baby Girl Stacy...Tootie says:

    Hi my Blessing. My Miss Pretty. Today is August 10th at 9:55 pm. I just got home but can’t get you off my mind. Mommy I wish we could have a do-ever. I wish I had more time. 😪 I wish that you never got sick. But what I am grateful for is I had you! You trusted me! You depended on me and I needed and depended on you just as much. Mom you are beyond special to me. You were such a wonderful Mother. Thank you so much for ALWAYS being there. And I mean ALWAYS! My good memories of you are endless. Goodnight my Blessing. I love you and i miss you so much 💚🐢💚

  71. Your Tootie Bug Stacy says:

    Not having you here to love on and to hug and to lay on your lap or shoulder is really getting to me. It’s not getting any easier Mom. 😕 I miss you so much. You have no idea.
    I am happy that you aren’t here suffering anymore, but getting sick shouldn’t have EVER happened to you anyway. You didn’t deserve that. You helped so many people and opened our home and your heart to so many. Why you Mommy?? Why 💔💔

  72. Your Tootie Bug Stacy says:

    Today is Tuesday Oct 3rd 2023 Mom. From the moment I woke up today, you’ve been on my mind. Today I went into the office for work and I don’t know why but I had the urge to call you two separate times. On the way home you were on my mind so heavy. Today I cried for you. I cried for me. I don’t know what it’s going to take for me to be okay like I promised, but I’m trying Mom. It just feels so unfair that I have to live the rest of my life without you! Never in a million years did I imagine you would be dead! You would be gone! Like nolonger here 10 days after your 66th birthday. 😔💔 I smile a lot and I joke alot and I am ANGRY alot! I’m angry Mom! I miss you so much. I just wish you were here and happy and dancing and talking and cooking and enjoying life! You were such a pleasant woman! So loving! You were my blessing and my everything! 😔 I love you. Today is just one of those days where I couldn’t contain my pain!

I needed a piece of you and this bear was with you when you took your last breath. Mommy I’m sorry I wasn’t there holding your hand. The thought is selfish but I don’t think I could have lived through seeing that. You’re my everything and it was already so hard watching you go slowly before my eyes. 😔😪 it has almost been 2 years 😳 💔 I wish I was hugging you and babying you and loving on you right me. I miss you Mommy.

  77. Stacy says:

You’re in my heart though!! I miss you! I wish I could feel your lips kiss my cheeks right now! Wish I could hear you call me tootie right now! Honestly I wish none of these wishes were even necessary 💔 Happy Mother’s Day My Miss Pretty!

    Hi Mommy!!! I’ve been holding you so close and dear to my heart lately. So many emotions and things happening and I don’t have u hear to talk to about it. I pray you’re watching over me always. I miss you my sweet blessing 🐢

  101. Stacy says:

    Hi my perfect lady! Hey my Miss Pretty! Today was a tough day. Just randomly think of you. Mom I wish we could have another chance to do things over!! I’m still in such disbelief that all this mess happened to you. Mom I am trying to move through life without you physically here but you’re always on my mind. I think that’s a good thing tho! Constant reminder that I’ll never forget you! Goodnight Mommy! Please always watch over me!

  102. Stacy says:

    Hi my Dear Mommy! Today is June 14th 2024… it’s a Friday. Guess what Mom, there is a certain person who constantly makes sure I am okay. He has not forgotten about you at all. That really warms my heart. I just wanted to tell you goodnight. I’m very sleepy it’s 1122 pm… I love you mommy

  103. Tootie says:

    Hi my Miss Pretty! My beautiful blessing!!! Mommy it has really been an interesting month!! All the way down to my having to have an emergency surgery to remove my Appendix last week. You have been on my mind so much lately. Well all the time. But lately I think about how miserable you must have been in your last year! The highlight of your days was probably waking up and seeing me act a fool with you lol. I use to love to try and make you laugh!! It just really weighs on me that you weren’t yourself for so long! I still just wonder why you and how!!!!!! I wish I had a chance to do things a little differently! You would have never started off where you were! I am so so so sorry Mommy that I didn’t do better when I had the chance! I thought you were okay…until you weren’t! I had no idea things would go as they did! Mom I would give anything to hold you in my arms again! All your Drs say I gave you more life!! Mommy I wish I could have given you an eternity!! You will forever live thru me! I love you with my life!! 🐢 I love you 🐢

“Gwen” as she liked to be called, was so full of love, laughter and life. One of her signature phrases that everyone would love to hear her say was “Oh Nooooo”…

Altadena California was home for Gwen, but she lived in Arizona collectively for 17 yrs. She loved the outdoors. She enjoyed Fishing, Camping, Bowling, playing Pool, Swimming, listening to music, dancing and spending time with family and friends. She was a polite, nurturing, strong woman, who was loved dearly.

Gwen made a difference in many lives. She loved working with children and helping people. From driving school buses, to running group homes for abused and neglected children, to being a foster parent and owning a childcare business; she did it all. In her latter years, she took care of adults with disabilities in her own home. That was her way of showing unconditional love to those who needed it most.

Gwen was preceded in death by her Father Stanley Sr, Mother Florine and older Brother James. She leaves behind to forever cherish her memory, 4 children; Shantell, Stephanie, Alprenice and Stacy. A daughter by blessing Aleiah, 10 Grand children, 1 Great Grandson Jayce, Brother Stanley Jr, Sister Andrea, Sister by blessing Crystal, Step Mother Josephine, Step Brother Robbie, 103 year old Aunt “Na Na” and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who became family over the years.

Gwen would not want anyone to be sad for her, but to celebrate her. They say

“Our Fingerprints Don’t Fade From The Lives We’ve Touched” and she will NEVER be forgotten!

    I love you so very much my Blessing. I promise to make you proud and to never forget you! You know I haven’t broken any promises to you and I don’t plan to start. Mom you were my reason amongst so many other things. You kept me going and gave me strength daily. Nomore appointments Mommy. You are beyond perfect and whole! I love you and you will be with me forever

  2. Sandra F. Potter says:

    Gwen was caring, loving and nurturing person, her heart was HUGE, always helping was her way. She loved her family with all of her heart, there was nothing she wouldn’t do for family and friends. Gwen was my rock here in Arizona, I was elated when she moved back to THIS GOD FORSAKEN DESERT, she was happy, where she made her home. Gwen was a blessing to know and to be her friend, cause I HAD A TRUE FRIEND IN GWENDOLYN BROWN. Good Bye Gweenie, til we meet again❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  3. Aleiah says:

    To be chosen to be loved is priceless. Thank you mommy for choosing to love me so dearly.
    Forever your Lay Lay

  4. Mai Barnes says:

    While I never had the opportunity to meet Gwen in person, I called her Mom. Gwen was beautiful and her personality was something that captured my heart immediately. Through Stacy, I saw her strengths and felt the love they both shared for one another. She reminded me of my mother with her strong personality and funny energy. It was a pleasure to be a part of Gwen’s life and an honor to put a smile upon her face with the few beautiful things I sent to her. She more often placed a smile upon my face. 🙂 May you rest peacefully pretty lady. You are missed!!!

    -Mai Barnes Smith

Mommy we use to talk alot about important things and with your fight and I thank you again and a final time for trusting me.

Daily I ask myself, “now what”…I still have your TV on in your room. Funny thing is, today I noticed the TV was off 🤔 hmmmm I didn’t turn it off. I think that was you, but I’m not ready Mommy so I turned it back on. 😔 Mommy I will treasure our memories and you will be with me always every step of the way. That’s why I put your name on my foot. I knew you would always walk with me. Sweet eternal dreams my Blessing

  23. Stacy (Tootie) says:

    Mom it has been a very very long 3 months without you. I just turned 41 on Sunday. You would be happy to know that I didn’t sit home sad all day. I thought about it but I knew that wouldn’t be good and you wouldn’t want that for me. Dolla misses you. I catch him coming out of your room sometimes. This place is not the same without you. I don’t even want to live here anymore. Mom I pray that your soul is at peace, I pray that you are watching over me and guiding me as you always have. Please be the set of footprints that carry me when I don’t have the strength to carry myself. 🙏🏾 I love you for an eternity Mommy. I will always be your keeper 💚

    • Stacy says:

      Hi Mom! I was thinking about you today. Well I think about you everyday as I told you before. Not having you in my life is just so unfair. No matter the age, I will never outgrow loving and needing you. Thank you for all of the wonderful memories and great childhood. There is nothing I would change when it comes to having you as my Mom. I pray you are in peace Mommy 🙏🏾…I’m not but I am working on it 🐢 I love you my blessing!

  37. Stacy says:

    Hi Mommy it’s me again…having one of those moments where I wish I could just lay on your chest like I use too. Hold your hand, massage your temples, prepare you for bed. Kissing your forehead and earing your puckers in my ear i miss the most. I wish things were different Mommy. I miss you. Your babygirl Tootie-

  38. Tootie says:

    Hi Mom, it’s been 8 long months. I miss you and I love you. Every time I catch 1:11 I say “hi mom”…mi.a I said it before, 40 years was not long enough for me. The others had you longer 😔💔

  39. Tootie says:

    I love you and I am thinking about you. 🙏🏾💔

    I still can’t believe you’re gone 💔 😔 😢 Goodnight my Blessing…no more appointments Mommy. You’ll never be out of sight out of mind when it comes to me. 🙏🏾💚 I was born for you Mommy

  42. Your Tootie says:

    Feel like I am constantly saying the same thing Mom. Everytime I see your picture here, I am in disbelief. My mind is not accepting what my eyes are seeing. I refuse to say that you’re in a better place because I know you weren’t ready to go. I know you weren’t tired of fighting…what I will say is, you nolonger have to deal with not being able to be yourself. Not being able to eat your Menudo, drive your car, play pool, go bowling, cook, eat what you want. You no longer have to be uncomfortable. I’m just so so very sorry that this is the way life turned out for us. I love you so much and I pray that I get to feel your presence and see you again one day. I don’t know what it’s like when you die, but I sure hope I’ll be with you when that time comes Mommy. I miss you my blessing. Dolla misses you. Aunty Andrea and Azzy. Goodnight my Blessing 😙💚💔

  43. Your Tootie Bug says:

    My Dear Beautiful Mother. It has been almost a year without you and still unbelievable. How unfair. I hate not having you here. I hate even more what you went through. I know I’m constantly saying the same thing, but I just can’t help how I am feeling. I’m only 41, what am I suppose to do without you? Whose here to love me the way you did. I don’t deal with any of the people who turned their backs on you. Mommy with you being sick, I really learned what family really means. That is NOTHING. I got you though Mom. In life and in death. I got you. Just the two of us. You’ll be with me forever Mommy just as I promised. I miss you and love you my Blessing.

  44. Your Tootie says:

    Hi my Blessing, my Miss Pretty…it’s been a very very very long 10 months without your beautiful face. Today you’ve been on my mind so much. I was telling Tajh today “you love me, you love me,”…I told him I use to ask you that all the time. He smiled. I love you and I miss you and you will never be forgotten Mom. Rest in peace Mommy 💔

  45. Your Tootie says:

    My beloved Mother…I miss you so very much. Wish I could bring you back healthy and vibrant as ever. I. So sorry Mom that this happened to you. You were missed on Thanksgiving but I know you were with me 💚 no more appointments Mommy. I love you

  46. Your Tootie says:

    Everytime my thoughts of you get to where I just can’t fathom, I come here. Once here seeing your picture doesn’t help. Mom I miss you so very much. There is so much more I wanted to enjoy with you. I have no family without you. Everyone who left you and put themselves before you, I’ve cut them off forever…and im okay with that. 💚 I love you my blessing. Goodnight

  47. Your Tootie says:

    Mommy I would give anything to just hold your hand again. I need you. I miss you 😔 Merry Christmas in heaven Mommy

  50. Your Tootie says:

    Happy Birthday my Blessing…my Miss Pretty

  51. Your Tootie says:

    Mommy it has been 363 days since I’ve felt your skin. Smelled your sweet scent, held your hands, kissed your forehead, been able to tell you in person how blessed I am to have you. It’s almost a year and it is not better. I am constantly hoping this is all a dream. Almost a year without my blessing. I am speechless

  52. Your Tootie says:

    Mommy! Mommy! It’s been 1 year and 4 days! I wish I could bring you back healthy and happy. I’m so very sorry Mommy that this happened to you. I’m even more sorry that in the end, things weren’t the way they should have been with others. But Mom as I told you, it’s just me and you! I got you Mom and I always will have you. I love you. Rest Peacefully my Blessing

  55. Your Tootie says:

    Hi my beautiful Mother. You’ve been on my mind a lot. So much has happen in such little time. I just want you to know that you will NEVER be forgotten. I wish you were here for me to hold your hand and take care of you. Miss watching Criminal Minds with you and Court shows. Until We meet again, I’ll be missing you my blessing 💚🙏🏾

I miss your smell, your touch, you’re smile! I’ll never understand why any of this happened to such a beautiful strong loving person such as yourself. Missing you terribly!

  59. Your Baby Girl Stacy...Your Tootie says:

    Mom, my 1st Love! My 1st hug, my 1st kiss on the cheek, all from you! Mom you’re my everything. You always have been. I remember people would say that you spoiled me. Well if that’s the case, I pray I was able to spoil you in return. I pray that you felt an abundance of love from me. It wasn’t easy Mommy but we did it! We did it! You did it Mommy! You held on as long as you could and I love you forever and a day for that. Mom you are my blessing always and forever. My forever Miss Pretty

  60. Tootie says:

    Just waiting for the day that it doesn’t hurt so bad. I’ve thought about writing you many many times over the last 2 weeks, especially on my birthday but I stopped myself. Mom this hurts so bad. The void I feel is indescribable. I’m angry! I’m sad and miss you so much. Like a bad dream

  61. Tootie says:

    Mommy I miss you 😔🥺😪💔

  62. Your Tootie Bug says:

    Hi Mommy! Happy Mother’s Day my Blessing! This is the 2nd Mother’s Day without you and it was a tough one for sure! Lots of tears and loneliness not having you here to guide me and tell me I’m doing a great job! I watched a lot of videos of you today. Some of them made me laugh. Mom it was such a blessing to have all the time I had with you towards the end of your life! It was my honor to care for you and to give you the LOVE YOU DESERVED. I pray that I am making you proud. I love you today and forever 🐢💚🐢

  63. Your Tootie Bug says:

    Loving you today and always my Blessing! I miss you Mom and you’re on my mind all the time 💚

  64. Your Tootie Bug says:

    Hi Mommy! I miss you so very very much. I’m still trying to understand all of this. Please guide and watch over me til we meet again 💚💔

  65. Your Tootie Bug says:

    Hi my Blessing!!! Hi Mommy!! I’ve been thinking about you. Mom guess what? On the 24th it was Mt 10 year anniversary at my job. Isn’t that exciting.? I wish you were here to celebrate with me! I’d definitely be trying to get you that Toyota Solara that you love so much. ❤️❤️❤️ kisses Mommy. Be back soon 💚💚💚💚💚

  66. Your Tootie Bug says:

    All these minutes, moments, days, months, hours, seconds and situations come and go and you’re still not here. Mom for the life of me I can’t figure out how and why this happened to you. Whose lesson was this… they say and you use to say everything happens for a reason but I refuse to believe that when it comes to this 😪 I wish you were here and well! I love and miss you dearly. – Stacy

  67. Your Tootie Bug says:

    Sigh……. 😔💔

  68. Your Tootie Bug says:

    Hi Mommy…writing you here is starting not to help me feel better about you being gone. I miss you so much and so bad. 😢 Time is just going and going but you’re still not here. The worst feeling ever

  69. Your Tootie Bug says:

    I seriously still cannot believe that YOU have an obituary Mom. I miss you so much. It’s just me out here basically. No siblings or nothing. Me Azzy and aunty Andrea is all I have me that you’re gone. You’re forever in my mind and heart Mommy…❤️ I love you my blessing 😘

  70. Your Baby Girl Stacy...Tootie says:

    Hi my Blessing. My Miss Pretty. Today is August 10th at 9:55 pm. I just got home but can’t get you off my mind. Mommy I wish we could have a do-ever. I wish I had more time. 😪 I wish that you never got sick. But what I am grateful for is I had you! You trusted me! You depended on me and I needed and depended on you just as much. Mom you are beyond special to me. You were such a wonderful Mother. Thank you so much for ALWAYS being there. And I mean ALWAYS! My good memories of you are endless. Goodnight my Blessing. I love you and i miss you so much 💚🐢💚

  71. Your Tootie Bug Stacy says:

    Not having you here to love on and to hug and to lay on your lap or shoulder is really getting to me. It’s not getting any easier Mom. 😕 I miss you so much. You have no idea.
    I am happy that you aren’t here suffering anymore, but getting sick shouldn’t have EVER happened to you anyway. You didn’t deserve that. You helped so many people and opened our home and your heart to so many. Why you Mommy?? Why 💔💔

  72. Your Tootie Bug Stacy says:

    Goodnight my Blessing. I miss you and thinking about you 😔

  73. Your Tootie Bug Stacy says:

    Today is Tuesday Oct 3rd 2023 Mom. From the moment I woke up today, you’ve been on my mind. Today I went into the office for work and I don’t know why but I had the urge to call you two separate times. On the way home you were on my mind so heavy. Today I cried for you. I cried for me. I don’t know what it’s going to take for me to be okay like I promised, but I’m trying Mom. It just feels so unfair that I have to live the rest of my life without you! Never in a million years did I imagine you would be dead! You would be gone! Like nolonger here 10 days after your 66th birthday. 😔💔 I smile a lot and I joke alot and I am ANGRY alot! I’m angry Mom! I miss you so much. I just wish you were here and happy and dancing and talking and cooking and enjoying life! You were such a pleasant woman! So loving! You were my blessing and my everything! 😔 I love you. Today is just one of those days where I couldn’t contain my pain!

I needed a piece of you and this bear was with you when you took your last breath. Mommy I’m sorry I wasn’t there holding your hand. The thought is selfish but I don’t think I could have lived through seeing that. You’re my everything and it was already so hard watching you go slowly before my eyes. 😔😪 it has almost been 2 years 😳 💔 I wish I was hugging you and babying you and loving on you right me. I miss you Mommy.

  77. Stacy says:

    Mommy. 💔😪 life will never be the same! I miss you and us! Our bond. How proud of me you always were. I wish I was able to fix everything for you! I pray you knew how much you meant to me and how much I love you. I’m so sorry mom for the things you had to endure. You were such a trooper and a blessing. I pray I am as strong as you always were. My forever blessing, I love you

    Hi Mommy!!! It’s 1:11 am….I have been seeing those number so often lately. I know it’s you letting me know that you’re with me. Just now when I came here to write you, I couldn’t believe it was your face in the picture.. like WHOA my Mommy is really gone!!! I miss you dearly. 😔 if only this had happened to someone else and not you! Like maybe one of the ppl who weren’t there for you!!!!!! I know that’s mean to say but I don’t care. Anyone who wasn’t there for you doesn’t deserve to have grace. But I’m finally getting sleepy. I love you Mom! I miss you. Love your babygirl Stacy

  86. Tootie says:

    Hi Mommy! Today is Mother’s Day 2024… I didn’t cry today. That’s because I acted like today was just as any other day. Mother’s Day no longer has a real meaning to me! You’re not here! You’re in my heart though!! I miss you! I wish I could feel your lips kiss my cheeks right now! Wish I could hear you call me tootie right now! Honestly I wish none of these wishes were even necessary 💔 Happy Mother’s Day My Miss Pretty!

    Hi Mommy!!! I’ve been holding you so close and dear to my heart lately. So many emotions and things happening and I don’t have u hear to talk to about it. I pray you’re watching over me always. I miss you my sweet blessing 🐢

  101. Stacy says:

    Hi my perfect lady! Hey my Miss Pretty! Today was a tough day. Just randomly think of you. Mom I wish we could have another chance to do things over!! I’m still in such disbelief that all this mess happened to you. Mom I am trying to move through life without you physically here but you’re always on my mind. I think that’s a good thing tho! Constant reminder that I’ll never forget you! Goodnight Mommy! Please always watch over me!

  102. Stacy says:

    Hi my Dear Mommy! Today is June 14th 2024… it’s a Friday. Guess what Mom, there is a certain person who constantly makes sure I am okay. He has not forgotten about you at all. That really warms my heart. I just wanted to tell you goodnight. I’m very sleepy it’s 1122 pm… I love you mommy

  103. Tootie says:

    Hi my Miss Pretty! My beautiful blessing!!! Mommy it has really been an interesting month!! All the way down to my having to have an emergency surgery to remove my Appendix last week. You have been on my mind so much lately. Well all the time. But lately I think about how miserable you must have been in your last year! The highlight of your days was probably waking up and seeing me act a fool with you lol. I use to love to try and make you laugh!! It just really weighs on me that you weren’t yourself for so long! I still just wonder why you and how!!!!!! I wish I had a chance to do things a little differently! You would have never started off where you were! I am so so so sorry Mommy that I didn’t do better when I had the chance! I thought you were okay…until you weren’t! I had no idea things would go as they did! Mom I would give anything to hold you in my arms again! All your Drs say I gave you more life!! Mommy I wish I could have given you an eternity!! You will forever live thru me! I love you with my life!! 🐢 I love you 🐢
