Martha Lee Hawkins (Gilliard)

Imagining a world without my grandmother is like imagining a world without my best friend. I have learned so many valuable lessons and shared many precious memories with the woman I call "Grandma." Although she is no longer with me physically, I feel her presence with me in everything I do. My daughter will never get to know firsthand what a beautiful, strong and devoted person her great grandmother was. Even though she will not be here to witness the birth of her great grandbaby, I am content in knowing that we have a beautiful and loving angel looking over us. I know you are now with my grandpa, daddy and cousin- I love you and miss you. - Carissa Hawkins

My mom, Frankie Kelly, introduced me to Mr. and Mrs. Hawkins many years ago. I was so thankful that your family embraced my mom so warmly and my mom always called the Hawkins her "friends". What I recognized immediately was the special bond between Ms. Hawkins and my mom and I know that they cared deeply for and looked out for each other. They exchanged calls almost daily even while my mother vacationed away from Monterey on the East Coast and Southern US each year. And when I came to California, I looked forward to visiting Ms. Hawkins whenever I traveled to the Peninsula. She spoke proudly and lovingly of her children and grands. She was witty and entertaining and enjoyed hearing me play and sing for her. And my could she cook! I hold fond memories of her and will greatly miss our customary visits when I return to Seaside later this year. Hawkins and Gilliard family, be strong and be encouraged. For weeping endureth for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. My sincerest sympathy in your lost. Frankie's son, Donald.

Grandma Hawkins was a wonderful woman, full of joy, laughter, and stories. Personally I didn't know her from what I saw and knew she was a great woman and I'm proud to call her my grandma. For ever love you.
