    To Kim, Kenneth (“Junie”), and Jonathan: So very saddened by the loss of your sweet mother and one of the spiritual “aunties” in North Bronx congregation. She was a strong woman and spiritually firm. Her life of integrity will not be forgotten and I can’t wait to see her again when the assured promise of the resurrection is soon fulfilled.
    Much love to you all

    Much love ❤️

    My dearest family – So thankful we were given Aunt Gladys to love for a life time. I remember visiting Aunt Gladys a few years ago and we stayed up all night talking, laughing and eating the wonderful dishes Aunt Gladys prepared…delicious . Aunt Gladys loved her nieces from North Carolina. She always took the time to express her love to us. I loved hearing her voice and how she made us feel when were together. I love you Aunt Gladys and will miss your beautiful smile.

    My sincere condolences to my Uncle Kenny, cousin Kim (Remy), cousin Kenny and cousin Jonathan.
    May GOD bless all of you during this time. I will continue to keep you in my prayers.

    Rest in peace….love you all.

    Paula Y. Walker (niece)

    You are in our thoughts and prayers. We know too well what it’s like to lose a parent. It will take time…

    Just remember that you did all that you could do and it is a blessing that you were by her side and holding her hand until the beginning of her next journey.

    May she rest in peace.

    Sue, Michael, and MJ
