Memories Timeline


  1. Everyone Loved Martha and we will miss her so much, she kept us informed on all Family Matters—–We Love you Martha

  2. CandleImageNanny, where do I begin???? You will forever be missed from here on. Words could never express all my appreciation and gratitude I have for you. We have had several moments where we didn’t always see eye to eye but that never changed my feelings at all for you. As I stood in your hospital room that last day all I could do was pray for peace, comfort and unity for the entire family as we were all saying our goodbyes to the rock of our family and the glue that held the puzzle pieces together. I witnessed the very strong ones become emotional and broken as they kissed your forehead and said goodbye. Goodbyes are never easy especially to someone so dear and loving as you. I know it won’t be easy as we lay you to rest but I hope we all can find the peace and comfort in knowing that your resting with our Lord and Savior in your brand new home and your not hurting or suffering anymore and one day may we be reunited in unity forevermore. I will miss you very much nanny and will love you forever! May you rest in peace. ????

    Loving you forever
    Your granddaughter,
    Christy Voyles

  9. CandleImageMom where do I start. First off thanks for raising me to be a strong independent woman, that’s what I always looked up to you for. Mom you fought cancer and won 3 times what determination you had it was not easy I know cause we were there with you. I remember one night Nene and I was sitting up at the hospital with you and you was in so much pain you was praying for the Lord to come get you. Tears was running down my face and I said mom you praying to die but I’m praying for you to live, I had to leave room and cried my eyes out. I won that time cause the Lord gave me 5 more years,and I thank him for that . I miss you badly but I know you where getting weak and weaker as the years rolled by and I couldn’t see the strong woman anymore it broke my heart. Mom rest in peace I know you have a new body and you are not in pain anymore. One more thing people will still see you in me cause everybody says I look just like you. I will never forget you mom but I miss you badly
    Your babygirl loves you
