  5. You took a piece of my heart with you Momma C! 🥲💔 I won’t ever get used to you not physically being here anymore, but I know you’ll be with us all in spirit! You were always there for us with open loving arms, and positive advice, please continue to be with us on our journeys down here until we join you! I won’t ever forget all the good times we shared with you and Daddy playing cards, and having family gatherings! We always had a ball, you made me laugh so much with your sense of humor! You were so worldly and wise. I’ll always keep and cherish all the momentos and memories of you! I’ve always loved you dearly and always will! Take care of Jason up there, and enjoy your time with your Mom, Dad, twin brother and all the rest of the angels you’ve joined! Spread your wings wide and wrap them around us as we say our worldly goodbyes, my beloved Momma C! ♥️😇

  6. To the family — may comfort find you in the memories of the one you have loved. She was a light for many Asheville High students and she was a friend to me and her co-workers. It was my pleasure to have shared many cougar moments with her in “that” classroom/office–she and Ms. E. Valentine and I even made a trip to McDowell when she taught there. Peace & Love my friend.

  7. Thank you to the family for sharing your mom and grandmother with me.
    I grieve with you. I’m holding you close in my heart and in my prayers.

    Miss T.P. As I would say to her in a high pitched voice on the phone (we would both crack up laughing) is missed already.

    My O’Momma there are no words to express the hollowness I feel at this moment.
    I’m grateful that the Lord blessed this world with your amazing greatness. You have been a blessing to so many.

    Rest in Heaven O’Momma.
    See you in the morning.
