Aunt Tip, Ill always remember the walks with mom and my sister to your apartment in Brooklyn. I was very young at the time but always looked forward to seeing you. I will cherish those memories and the times we shared. Peace be with you throughout eternity. Love your niece, Gaye

Dearest Ms. Arlene-
It was a pleasure being your neighbor during my childhood. Thanks for the delicious meals you prepared for your daughter Marsha Denise and I on Sundays. I will always remember you, and keep you in my heart. S.I.P. Until we meet again
