My deepest sympathy to the family. Mrs. Ida I remember your beautiful smile as child when I use to come over to see if Valerie was home. I always admired the great job you done raising all your children. Heaven has gained another angel and may you rest in the loving arms of the Lord.

I will miss that beautiful smile. I would always tell you how much you looked like your mom, my grandmother. I was able to continue loving her through you. You never knew it but you were my gateway to Grandma after she took her flight. All the times I would steal kisses from your plump cheeks or hold your hands, you were more of a Blessing than you knew. Life will never be the same without you but I also take solace in knowing that you are at Rest with the Lord.

Sonya BKA Shuga (I always loved the way you said that)

I'm missing you so much. I'm at peace knowing you are resting in God's arms now with Daddy, Bigeye, Andrew, RJ, and Jahlissa. I sleep every night with your blanket over me to stay covered with your love. For the 81 wonderful years I had with you I'm greateful. Thank you for your teaching as a little girl that has blossomed me into a woman. I'm glad that as a woman I had the time to show you that your love and teachings as a little girl was understood, appreciated and reciprocated.

Momma you will be in my heart forever.

Love your daughter, Michelle Roach
