While my heart is broken because of such a great loss of a woman who has brought
great wisdom, laughter, and joy in my life...I rejoice in the knowing she suffers no more and her Spirit is now free...To my family Criss, Shonda, Shana, Justin, Corey, and the kids my heartfelt prayers are with you all Veta

Chrystal and grandkids.
There is no one now living or dead who knows me better or shared more memories than your Mom and I did. We have loved each other since long before any of you were borne up to the day she left us. I truly believe she visited me this morning. I went back and re-read all the letters, poems and other correspondence I received from Delores over a number of years and found a lot of the old photographs. A lot of memories when you go back 65 years. I know how sick she was and how positive she was right up to the end. In fact, there were many things happening with her health that she had not even confided to me until near the end. I complimented her about how unbelievably positive she was and she was extremely happy for Chris to return from Florida to help with her care. She was a great Mom and Grandmother and truly loved her family. I will always love and remember your Mom/Grandmother and I know she is now free from pain and earthly worries. I hope she "hooks" up with Aunt Lula, Uncle Buck, my Elmer, my Mom and my Aunt Blanche. Tell them hello and that I miss them all.

To the Whitfield/Martin family although I didn't know your love one ,I do know the pain of loosing someone you love dearly. So I'd like to add my prayers and condolences to all of you ..May you find comfort in knowing that your love one is safe in God's memory, and you can get to see her again in the resurrection, but for now I know nothing will completely erase the pain you may be going through now. Just keep hoping and trusting in God's promises.
