Everytime I have grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup I think of you in the kitchen at Celebration Christian Center, best tomatoe soup and grilled cheese I've ever had, thank you for being my friend and sister in Christ!❤

We grew up together like sisters. Hanging out and travelling. Making everyone laugh and have a good time. Thank you for making all those happy memories, I will cherish them forever. I am deeply saddened, but the memories in my heart bring a smile to my face. It is said that when you lose someone you love-you gain an angel you know. Goodbye my cousin [ CUZ ]

She was the easiest person to talk to and I had the opportunity to work with 3 of her good hearted daughters. She was a great mother figure that I always admired her for her strength and good heart. Natalie will be deeply missed and was well loved by all of the community.
