    Oh Ladonna, I know your heart is broken. Never ready to let our loved ones go, under any circumstances. Heaven has gained a wonderful woman, cook, caregiver, and boss!! Thank you for sharing your mama with me and so many others. Can’t explain how much I loved her and your daddy and was so blessed to be loved by them in return.
    Much love to you, and praying for God’s peace to wash over you.

  9. LaDonna,
    So very sorry to hear of your beautiful mother passing. I can’t tell you how much I loved spending time with her. She had the most infectious laugh. She was a true boss lady and could cook better than anyone I know. There was never any doubt that she love me and my sisters like her own. Prayers for you and your family.
