Traci, I’m so sorry for your loss.
Our McCoy~Porter matriarch has walked into the arms of her loved ones that went to their kingdom before her. We all have been blessed to have this amazing lady in our lives, for she was the glue that kept us all together. Mom~you will be missed every moment we are apart, who came for you and walked with you?,(if only I could know), tell everyone “hey” and one day we will be together❤️God has a plan that I know to be true. ((Hugs))✌🏻
She has left a hole on earth but has filled one in heaven
Mom You will be missed more than you know. With you in heaven makes it lonely here. You and I both in the hospital with COVID-19 and the difference being you went home and I didn’t. I guess I am the Matriarch now, hope I can fill your shoes. I’ll see all of you when its time for me to come home, until then have fun dancing with John. I love you
