I wish I knew where and how to begin. Only the fact that I loved you mom with all my heart and all my soul. The things you did for me, well for all of us cannot be counted or measured in any way. From making our Mardi Gras costumes to making us the wonderful people we are today, this comes from you. I can see your love, dads love and the love from Sadie and Phanor flowing in the veins of your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. The wonderful mixture of Zimmer and Chaix that is in me makes me the person I am today. I was a teacher's aide for 27 years working with the learning disabled children and it was only from the teachings and love I received from you and dad that provided me with the "want" and the "love" to do it. I may not have always looked like I was listening or learning from you mom, but I was and I thank you for that. I love you mom, and I will love you for always, forever and a day......You left behind a wonderful legacy that will continue, this I promise..........
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
To the family of Ms Earline although I've only known Ms Earline for only a short period of time it was my great pleasure of taking care of her. She was a beautiful lady and Ms Sandra when ever you feel your self painfully missing her just look in the mirror because you look just like her beautiful.(tear). My fondest memory of her was when I brought her to the dining room to play Bingo . she was so happy. And when she finally won and said Bingo!! I couldn't believe how excited she was when they brought her the winning of 75cents her smile was priceless.
Willy, Jayne and family - I am so sorry that you have lost your mother and grandmother. From those delightful pictures, her personality looms large and shows great affection for her family. I would love to hear the wonderful stories and memories you will all share.
My prayers are with all of you and I know your faith and trust in God will help you during this very sad time in your lives.
To Sandra, Alonzo (Willy) Suzette and David. Growing up the way we did, we had many mom's and dad's to look up to. Your's were special. The fun we had growing up with your mom and dad and yes your grandparents too, looking over us. My thoughts are with you and your mom will be in our prayers.
