I will truly miss my granny and I wish I could keep her longer but I have to accept she is gone now. She was not materialistic and never seemed to have much but she gave a lot . If she loved you , she showed it. She would protect her family and grandchildren . She would give her last dime if you wanted it and if you were hurt she would try to make it better.
thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers. Love Linda (sissie)
My condolences to her family. I knew her many years ago, she was a sweet lady. RIP Ms. Mitchell
I did not get to know Lorene very well, but I know that she loved her sons and grandchildren very much and they loved her very much in return. She will be missed by her family and they will have heavy hearts for a long time. I hope they will find comfort in knowing she knew how much they loved her and she left this world in peace. My love to the family and I am thinking of each and every one.
Granny was very special to her, they had very special times together and she was like a Mother to her. She enjoyed the time she had with Granny over the years. Mom , truly loved Granny and she will miss her.
