  9. Tressa Massingill

    Mom I will miss you so much. I know that we were like oil and water sometimes but you were the sweet one and I was the sour one. lol I love you so much and you know how much you meant to me and my kids. Thank you for making Calvin feel like one of the family. We will remember you and all the laughs we had at the house. Thank you for being there for me at the lowest point in my life. Not only did you give me life but you saved my life. No one knows what we went through together and how we kept each other going. I don’t know what to do without you right now. I am sad that you had to be quarantined and we couldn’t sit with you and take you out for dinner. God was ready for you to come home or maybe you were just tired of this old life and all it’s troubles and heartaches. I will see you again someday, give Mamaw, Grandad Lewis and my daddy a hug from me. Tell Uncle Jacky about his pretty girl Stacey and how she looks so much like him.
