  1. Dear Ate Riquette,

    It was truly shocking when I received the heartbreaking news of your passing. I will forever remember where I was and what I was doing when my world changed.

    You had always been very supportive of your siblings since we were little kids. Thank you for all your guidance throughout the years. I wished we had more time together but I cherish all the moments we shared. One of the moments I cherished the most is when Kay and I moved to Florida, 17 years ago, and you decided to come with us for 2 weeks to help us get settled. You made sure we were going to be okay and not feel home sick. We enjoyed visiting you and the family every summer, and we loved when you came to visit us as well. You were always there for us, and you had an incredible caring heart. I know you were proud of your baby sister, and I am honored to call you my older sister.

    I have admired how you raised your children. They have turned out incredibly polite, respectful, loving and caring. You were also an amazing and wonderful grandmother to your grandchildren.

    I was blessed to have been approached by so many of your friends during the services, and hear all their wonderful and glorious memories they had with you. You have touched countless lives with your loving and kind heart.

    May we all find comfort in knowing that you are with God – resting in perfect peace. It is the wonderful things that I will remember, the great memories, the laugher, and the smiles. Although it may seem hard right now, it will be these memories that will help push away the pain and bring back the smiles again. The love of family and friends will be our source of comfort at this time.

    I will forever remember all our phone calls, texts and emails. I love you very much my sister and I will dearly miss you,until we meet again.

    P.S. Don’t worry Ate, I know you will always be looking out for your family from Heaven but I have promised your boys and the grandkids that I will be here for them on Earth.

    You will forever be in my heart,
    Mae (youngest sister)
