Uncle Robert, Aunt Sheri, Mother, Uncle Dewayne, and Aunt Sharilyn:

I am sorry that Grandma passed and sorry if you think that I wasn't there (I WAS the very first one to see Grandma and left her with beautiful flowers that I hope and pray she was buried with). I did not want to make trouble or deal with any trouble on the day that Grandma was buried and put to rest with Grandpa waiting. I have more respect for my Grandma than that. This was she was handed over to God in Peace and reconnected to Grandpa Vernon and all of the family waiting on her in Heaven. She knows how I feel about her and I know each one of you know deep down how much I loved and cared for her. She has always been there for me when I had no one else. Just know Grandma is no longer hurting. Please also know that I am here for ALL of you and LOVE YOU!

You have always been there for me.....when people turned their backs on me because they thought that I was lying you were their. You knew what was going on and never doubted me. You were a strong, loving, caring, wonderful and amazing woman. You will forever live in me and I'm so grateful that you were and are my Grandmother. I was the first one at the funeral home today to say my final Goodbye, but Dear Grandma it is not ever a goodbye because I know that you are there with me throughout each and every day. A part of you will always live in me and through me and I'm so glad that you have made me into a strong, truthful, honest you woman who looks and has a mind and is not afraid to use it or say what needs to be said. You have made my life worth living and have made a huge impact on the person I am today. I LOVE YOU Grandma Jean and I always will Love you. You live in me and ALWAYS will. I'm also grateful that my husband got to meet such an incredible woman that Is MY GRANDMA and loves you like his own. Like I know you love him like he is your own.
We will forever miss and FOREVER LOVE YOU!!!!
Love your darling Grand-daughter Tina and you Grand-son Richard Pimentel

My thoughts and prayers are with your family in this time of loss, as are my mothers. Helen Wakefield. My mother was Jeans room mate while she was a resident at Lakeland Health Center and I spoke with her a few moments every day or two. God Bless.
