Grandma Jenkins !!!!!! So many memories and so many good times remembering walking to Bradleys and all the time we spent together when I was little. You always told me that I was special and to work hard in life you made me laugh and cheered me up when I was sad. You are the best and I love you forever and always Joey

Grandma, Words can’t express the love I have for you. A kid couldn’t ask for a better grandma. You were so loving, caring, generous, and just so cool. I appreciate all the time we used to spend together and will hold the memories close to my heart forever. Seeing you go was tough for me, but i feel great knowing God has brought another angel into his kingdom. I know you will watch over me so I know I will never truly lose you! Until we meet again… Rest Easy Gram. I love you!

I was momentarily speechless when I was informed of your passing. Even though it was expected ,it hurt nonetheless. I know that you knew I was there and I’m so grateful to God that I was able to visit with you one last time in the earthly realm. Even though I hate the thought of you being gone I love the thought of where you’re going. I will forever cherish the memories of you in my heart. I Love You Grandma…….and I will see you again.

Mom, words along can’t express what I feel. You played a very important part in my life with BJ. I know you are a woman of God so when you got to heaven I know you were welcome with open arms and God said, job well done my faithful and loyal servant. You will be missed so much but I know you will always be watching over us. Time has come for you to rest and rejoice. I will always keep a piece of you in my heart. Much love always!!!!
