  1. Words can not expression the way I am feeling right now. Just know that you are and always be in my heart! I love you so much. I know now that you are up in heaven with Justin on your lap and John and Charlotte at your side looking over all of us. Love you momma always and forever

  2. Murrita, we are so sorry for your loss! Losing a mother is so hard. I know what you are going though so I’m here if you need to talk.
    It’s been a while since I seen your mom. She came to my house with John John, I guess she noticed all the toys and kid stuff throughout the house and she asked me if I run a daycare out of my house… I said No I just have a lot of kids! She laughed so hard.
    I hope I put a smile on your face

  3. Rest in peace momma! I love and miss you bunches but at least you aren’t suffering anymore! I miss you singing to my dog, Paris! I know I have a new guardian angel looking over me now…

  4. Thinking of you at this difficult time. May the laughter shared and memories made give you comfort.

  5. There are never the right words. I know your hurt as I too have been there. God has his plan and his reasons that we can’t understand. You can rest assured she is no longer in pain. Prayers to her family.

  6. I am so sorry for your loss. I know she loved all of you very much and will miss being part of your lives. May God be with you.

  7. I am so sorry for your loss. Charlene was a very loving and giving person. I lost track of her and tried to locate her but we had both moved, got cell phones, and she changed her last name. I am proud she was my friend. I love you lady.
