Eligibility: Users under 18 years of age are not eligible to use the Services without consent. Users between the ages of 13 and 17, can use the Services with the consent and supervision of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age; provided, however, that such parent or legal guardian agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, and agrees to be responsible for such use of the Services. Company reserves the right to refuse use of the Services to anyone and to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove or suspend any Campaign, Donation, or the Services at any time for any reason without liability.

Definitions: In these Terms and Conditions "Campaign Organizers" means those raising funds, and "Campaigns" as their fundraising campaigns. Additionally, "Donors" means those contributing funds, and "Donations" as the funds they contribute. Campaign Organizers, Donors and other visitors to the Services are referred to collectively as "Users". The term "Campaign Organizers" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of Campaigns.

Services: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to Users of the Services. Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance thereof. The Company has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Services. To the extent you access the Services through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier's standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding Company and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about use of the Services may be communicated to us.

Charitable Giving: Campaigns are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. Any Donation you make through the Platform may be processed by an unaffiliated business partner for which a processing fee (in addition to our FrontRunner Professional Fee) is deducted. You understand, acknowledge and agree that Company is not a charity, and Company does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution. Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations.

Administrative Platform Only: The Services are an administrative platform only. The Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations between Campaign Organizers and Donors, and is not a party to any agreement between Campaign Organizers and Donors. Company is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Company has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by Campaign Organizers, and Company hereby disclaims all liability in this regard. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success or outcome of any Campaign. Donors must in their sole discretion make the final determination of making Donations to any Campaigns. Donors are solely responsible for asking questions and investigating Campaign Organizers and Campaigns to the extent they feel is necessary before making a Contribution. All Donations are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of Donors. Company does not guarantee that Donations will be used as promised. Company does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, or legality of any Campaign. Donors are solely responsible for determining how to treat their Donations for tax purposes.

No Verification of Campaign Information: We do not verify the information that Campaign Organizers supply, and do not guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by Campaign Organizers. We disclaim and assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws.

Your Registration Obligations: You may be required to register with Company in order to access and use certain features of the Services. If you choose to register for the Services, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration form. Campaign Organizers must register using their true identities, including their name and any image purporting to depict the Campaign Organizer. Registration data and certain other information about you are governed by our Privacy Policy. If you are under 13 years of age, you are not authorized to use the Services, with or without registering. In addition, if you are under 18 years old, you may use the Services, with or without registering, only with the approval of your parent or guardian. Certain aspects of our Services may also require you to register with (and agree to the terms of) third party service providers (e.g., payment processors or charitable donation processors) in order to utilize such Services. While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties. We may exchange information with such third party services in order to facilitate the provision of Services (and related third party services).

Public Display of Donations: Donors have the option to publicly display their Donations for public viewing or allow their information to be provided to the Campaign beneficiary(ies). To keep the details of your Donation private, simply click the appropriate checkbox during the Donation process. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information on the ways that we may collect, use, and store certain information about you and your use of the Services.

Payment of Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign, Donors will be required to provide Company information regarding its credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or other payment method. Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee"). Donors acknowledge that by contributing Donations to Campaigns, Donors are agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms and Conditions. The portion of each Donation payable to and retained by our third party payment processors are:

        • US Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

        • CA Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

All Tribute Pay Fees and Processing Fees ("Fees") are deducted directly from each Donation and are not reflected in the amount which Campaign Organizers can withdraw from the Campaign. We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

Indemnification: You agree to release, indemnify and hold Company and its affiliates and their owners, officers, employees, directors and agents harmless from any from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, rights, claims, causes of action, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Services, any Donation or Campaign, your violation of these Terms and Conditions or your violation of any rights of another. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine




DISPUTE RESOLUTION - ARBITRATION (READ CAREFULLY): You agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and Company (including our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Company should be sent to 2501 Parmenter Street, Suite 300A, Middleton, WI 53562, Attn: President, with a copy by email to support@tributepayments.com ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Company and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) days after the Notice is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Company or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Company is entitled.

The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Terms and Conditions, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Terms and Conditions. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of the arbitration provision. Unless Company and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Chicago, Illinois. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless both you and Company agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.


BOOKOFMEMORIES.COM, including mobile applications and related services (collectively the “Site”) is fully owned and operated by FrontRunner Professional, (the “Company,” “we,” “us,” “our”). Company takes your privacy seriously. We feel it is important that you fully understand the terms and conditions under which we use the information we gather from you through the use of our Site. Please read this Privacy Policy ("Policy") carefully to understand how we will use and protect your Personal Information. We will not share your Personal Information with anyone except as described in this Policy. Changes to this Policy will be announced on our Site, so please check back periodically. This Policy forms part of the Company’s TERMS AND CONDITIONS and is incorporated by reference to those Terms and Conditions.

This Policy outlines Company’s general policies and practices for protecting your private information on this Site. It covers why Company collects information, the types of information it gathers, how it uses such information, and the notice and choice affected individuals have regarding Company’s use of and their ability to correct their information. This Policy applies to all personal information received by Company whether in electronic, written, or verbal format.

Company reserves the right to modify this Policy at any time and will do so from time to time. Each modification shall be effective upon its posting to the Site. Your continued use of the Site following any such modification constitutes your acceptance of any change(s) to this Policy. It is therefore important that you review this Policy regularly. If you have any questions concerning this Policy please contact Company at support@frontrunner360.com.

1. Scope

This Policy covers the Site in part and as a whole. However, it does not apply to entities that Company does not own or control, including without limitation, Campaign, advertisers or developers of content. Company may include third-party links on the Site. These third-party sites are governed by their own privacy policies and NOT this Policy. Company therefore has no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these third-party sites. Please check the privacy policy of any third-party site you interact with on or off the Site.

2. General Policy Provisions

  1. Definitions

    “Personal Information” includes both “Personally Identifiable Information” and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”.

    "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you. Personally Identifiable Information is requested when you register with us, make a Donation, correspond with us, or otherwise volunteer information, for instance, through the use of "Contact Us". Personally Identifiable Information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and other identification and contact information.

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information. We gather certain information about you based upon what you view on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

    “Sensitive Personal Information” means Personal Information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or that concerns an individual’s health.

  2. Notice

    Company shall inform you of the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which Company discloses or may disclose that information. Company shall provide you with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of your Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide Personal Information to Company, or as soon as practicable thereafter. In any event, you will receive notice before Company uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

  3. Choice

    Company will offer you the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether Personal Information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. For Sensitive Personal Information (when applicable), Company will give you the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. Company will treat Sensitive Personal Information it receives from anyone the same as it would treat its own Sensitive Personal Information.

  4. Security

    Company shall take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. No company is immune from Internet attacks or data breaches. Company cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.

  5. Data Integrity

    Company shall only process Personal Information in a way that is compatible with and relevant to the purpose for which it was collected or has been authorized. To the extent necessary for those purposes, Company shall take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is accurate, complete, current, and reliable for its intended use.

  6. How to Access Your Information

    Company offers you choices for the collection, use and sharing of Personal Information. You may notify Company of your preferences, or change any Personal Information, by emailing support@frontrunner360.com.

    You may also stop the delivery of future promotional e-mail from Company by responding directly to any email you receive with a request to remove you from the mailing list.

3.Reasons the Company Collects Personal Information

Company collects your Personal Information because it helps deliver a superior online experience, gives you convenient access to the Site for browsing, and allows key features of the Site to function properly. In order to better provide you with this superior level of customer service, our Site collects two types of information (referred to in this policy as "Personal Information") about our visitors: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. In addition, your Personal Information helps Company keep you informed about the latest announcements, special offers, and events that you might like to hear about.

4. Information Company Collects About You

Any time a guest or member (collectively “Users”) accesses the Site they receive a “cookie” from Company. Company uses cookies (small pieces of data stored for an extended period of time on a computer, mobile phone, or other device) to make the Site easier to use and to protect both you and Company. These cookies give Company certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information about your use of the Site. You may remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use the Site. Company may also use pixels, widgets and other tools to gather such Non-Personally Identifiable Information to improve the experience of the website or mobile application.

Company may contract with third-party service providers to assist it in better understanding its Site Users. These service providers are not permitted to use the Non-Personally Identifiable Information collected on Company’s behalf except to help it conduct and improve its business.

When you access the Site from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, Company may collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about the user base as a whole. Company will not use the information collected to market directly to that person.

Company keeps track of some of the actions you take on the Site such as member profiles and pages you view. Even if you do not provide certain information, Company may obtain it from you profile or the pages of its Site that you visit. Company may retain the details of connections or transactions you make on the Site.

5. Information You Provide to Company

To become a User, Company shall collect certain Personally Identifiable Information, which you are required to provide. Information that is not required shall be deemed voluntary and you may provide such information, although not mandatory.

Frequently, Content you place on the Site will contain a picture of your face. Company may retain the details of connections or transactions you make on the Site.

Where applicable, when you interact with other Users on the Site, you may provide other information about yourself, such as political or topical views, religious affiliation, or marital status. Any information in a public forum is accessible by anyone, including people who are not members of the Site. Please be aware they may share information you give them with other Users you may not know. They may also share the information outside the Site without your prior approval. Company does not have control over the actions of its Users and accepts no responsibility or liability for their actions. Please keep this fact in mind when using the Site, and use care when disclosing Personal Information to other Users of the Site.

Company may also collect information from ads you click on when using the Site. Company may also keep track of links you click on in e-mails you receive from Company. This is done to increase the relevancy of the ads you see.

6. How Company Uses Your Personal Information

Company uses the information you are required to provide to become a User in order to insure you are over the age of thirteen (13). THE SITE IS NOT MEANT TO BE USED BY ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF THIRTEEN (13). If you are under thirteen, please do not attempt to register with the Site or send Company any Personal Information. Company may also use your age information to be sure you receive an age appropriate experience while using the Site.

Company will use the information it collects to provide, without limitation, services and features to you and facilitate payment for any Donations between Campaign Organizers and Donors and provide information to Campaign Organizers and Campaign beneficiaries. Company will also use the information to measure and improve the Site, and to provide you with customer support.

Company may contact you with new or updated products or services, designs, routes, surveys, or other related announcements from time to time. You may opt-out of all communications except essential updates. Company may include Content in the e-mails sent to you.

Certain software applications and applets transmit data to Company. Company may not make a formal disclosure if it believes its collection of and use of the information is the obvious purpose of the Site or its related application. If it is not obvious that Company is collecting or using such information, it will disclose its collection to you the first time you provide the information.

Company may use the information collected to prevent potential illegal activities. Company may also use a variety of methods to detect and address anomalous activity and screen content to prevent abuse.

Company may use your information to serve you personalized advertising. Company does not share your information with advertisers without your consent. Company allows advertisers to choose the characteristics of Users who will see their advertisements. Company may use any of the Non-Personally Identifiable Information it has collected in any fashion to select the appropriate audience. Company will not tell the advertiser who you are as part of this process. When you interact with an advertisement there is a possibility that you may receive a cookie from the advertiser.

7. How Company Shares Your Information

Company shares your Personal Information with third parties when it believes you have permitted such sharing, that it is reasonably necessary to offer services, or when legally required to do so. Company will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties in a way that it thinks violates your privacy. The following non-exhaustive list contains examples of how Company shares or could share your information:

  1. If Site allows you to invite a friend to join the Site or become a User, and you choose to do so, the invitation will contain information that will allow your friend to identify you. The invitation may contain information about other Users your friend might know.

  2. Certain information you provide to Company may be shared by using the Site’s search function. This allows other Users to locate your profile and it allows new Users to find people they know on the Site.

  3. Company provides some public information to search engines. This information allows search engines to locate the Site. It also allows people to locate you on the Site using a major search engine. This does not mean all information you post on the Site may be accessed using a search engine.

  4. There are also times when Company may make certain Personal Information about you available to strategic partners or third parties. These companies may help Company process information, render services to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in products and services, or conduct research or satisfaction surveys. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to use Company's Site and services.

  5. Company may also share Personal Information when it has a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect itself and you from people violating the Terms and Conditions of the Site. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, and courts or other government entities.

  6. Company may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if it has a good faith belief that the law requires such a response. This may include requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States if Company has a good faith belief that the response is required by law under the local laws in that jurisdiction, is applicable to users from that jurisdiction, and is consistent with generally accepted international standards.

  7. Company may disclose analyzed data in the form of purchasing trends or statistical data. No Personally Identifiable Information will be attached to this disclosure.

8. Business or Asset Transfer or Sale

Company may be sold, sell or buy businesses or assets of businesses, or merge with another business. In such transactions, Personal Information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Company, a line of business of Company, or substantially all the assets of Company are transferred, Personal Information may well be one of the transferred assets. Company will make a reasonable effort to provide notice on the Site, and to notify you via e-mail to the most recent e-mail address that you have provided of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

9. Miscellaneous

  1. Privacy of Children


    Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to Company. Company does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13, but because some information is collected electronically, it can appear to be the Personal Information of someone over the age of 13, and will be treated as such by this Policy. If a child under 13 submits Personal Information and Company learns that Personal Information pertains to a child under 13, it will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. It is Company’s policy to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. Therefore, Company restricts the Site and all other provided services to persons 18 years or older.

  2. Agreement with Policy and Continued Use of Site

    Unless stated otherwise, Company’s current Policy applies to all information that Company has about you, your account, and access to the Site. By using the Site, you consent to this Policy and having your Personal Information and data transferred and processed as described.


Please share your favorite memory of Jean to be included in a special keepsake book for the family.
Jean Elsie Thomas (Womack) aka Gorgeous Bug passed away on April 22, 2024, at Doctors Community Medical Center, Lanham, MD, at the age of 61, after a long battle with her illness. She was born on June 7, 1962, in Cheverly, MD, the only child of the late Ruth Hogg and Terry Womack. Elsie, as she was affectionately known, had a fulfilling career in Information Technology. She studied Information Technology at University of Maryland and Bowie State University. Some highlights of her exceptional career were the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as an Information Technology Asset Manager; Department of Veterans Affairs as Acting Director and Level III IT Project Manager, and Roberts Oxygen as an IT System Analyst.

She was a dedicated member of the First Baptist Church of Highland Park. She enjoyed Biblical productions performed locally at Site and Sound Stage, Pennsylvania. Elsie gleamed during the holiday, she especially loved Christmas lights, hot chocolate and smores!

Elsie had a flair for bid whist, which she traveled with her circle of friends to play from South Carolina to Pennsylvania. Her zest for life included an enjoyment of swimming, in any body of water, especially the blue oceans of the Caribbean Islands and Hawaii where she traveled with friends and her sisters Gail and Linda. She often traveled to Arizona and Mexico with her son Eddie, where she enjoyed rock collecting in the dessert and marveled at the jewelry she found among the natives. We must mention her grand dog, “Mischievous Fudge Thomas", who she absolutely adored!

Elise loved, loved fashion! She was a fly girl who delighted in shopping. Brilliant colors, whimsical outfits, beautiful fabrics that would take your breath away. She paired her outfits with the wonderful jewelry she collected from her sister Mary’s store Maja, and during myriad travels. Her sister Cecilia was always available for a trip to “Tall Girls” to shop, taking in a scrumptious meal and viewing an exciting movie.

Elsie was an avid foodie who loved to explore different cuisines during her travels. When she could no longer travel, she combed the internet for recipes to try. Jean-Elsie would try her hand at creating any dish that struck her fancy. Most of which were quite tasty. Her interests also included Gospel Music, Theater, Food and Music Festivals and admiring beautiful flowers.

Jean will be deeply missed by her son, Edward Clifton Thomas, Jr.; sisters, Mary (Stanley) Butler, Cecilia H. Wilkerson, Gail D. Hogg, and Linda J. Bradley; brother, Gerald (Janet) Hogg; nieces, Niquell A. Hillman, Kelly Adrea, Laquecia Hogg-Fong, Wauseka Hogg, Tunisia (Matthew) McDonald, Tennille Hogg, Chia Cole, Nikita Hillman, Sharmelia Butler, Quiana Bell and a host of great nieces, nephews and cousins. She was preceded in death by her father, Terry K. Womack; mother, Ruth S. Hogg; stepfather, James Hogg, Sr.; and brother, James Hogg, Jr., Brother-in-laws, Donald Bradley and James Wilkerson, Sr.

A service to honor and remember Jean Elsie Thomas will be held at JB Jenkins Funeral Home, Landover, MD. Interment will take place at Harmony Memorial Cemetery following the service; followed by repass, time and place to be determined.

Posted at 09:09am
My personal bond with my baby sister started when she was an infant. When I held her in my teenage arms, she was my Goochi Bug! That is what I called her throughout her life, sometimes shortened to Bug! My husband called her Gorgeous Bug when she became the fashion Icon of the family! She was smart, sassy, strong and independent. She had a smile to light up every heart! Her excitement making selections from my store’s clothing and jewelry made me feel like there was a purpose I chose to have my business. She always got the best! She was a miracle and a survivor in how she managed her work and lifestyle in spite of her chronic health problem. I will never forget my youngest sister. She lives on within my soul! Love you Bug!

Message read during service by Quiana:

Thank you mother for the life we had. Thank you for instilling a love of life, a sense of adventure, courageousness and drive to succeed in life. I proudly left the house able to bravely take on the world, Take on the Marines and have a stable career doing what I love because you always pushed me to be better and never settle.

The many lessons will never be forgotten as you sit on my shoulder cracking jokes to me, scolding me, backing me up if someone does me wrong or just cheering me as the best cheerleader one could ask for.

Watching you be mom, was in hindsight a great experience. You did what you could to put a smile on my face and let me know the world is a mean place. We had our own challenges that made us tough. An unlikely pair of teammates but we were all we had braving our life’s hardships together. The “business” as you would say, was to get me out of the house successfully. We did it!!

You loved knowing I was doing good on my own and supported me in living on another coast. Allowing me space and freedom. You loved your escapes coming to visit me and do you “check ups”. You’d pester me but I enjoyed having you.

Watching you struggle on earth was hard, But I gained even more reverence for you just watching you take care of yourself. Your independence, still going to work having to doctor yourself and never giving up. Still getting excited over food and things we were going to do, always planning travel or some over the top food was always your spark. You never once, gave up on anything. You are the most courageous person and always have been an inspiration for me.

You worked Sooo hard in this life. You’d let me know you were tired so I dreaded the day, but you never shy away from “the talk”. I’m sad for you to leave me but you prepared me for this early on. You were never a quiet person, something we share, so the lectures, I promise will live in my head forever. Selfishly, I’m never going to be okay not hearing you speak to me anymore as someone who had a lot to say but I am at peace knowing you finally don’t have to go struggle with all that medical headache, just to get minimal returns on life anymore.

May your beautiful electric smile continue to be my guiding light. I know you always prayed for me everyday. I’ll look out for signs of you. I know you’ll be the most colorful songbird or the most attention grabbing flower. I will honor you, Mother! I Love you eternally.

Until we meet again.

Original message to mom:

Thank you Mother for the life we had. It was a lot of lessons. You were never afraid to let me know how the world works from day one. I really do feel like you left no stone unturned. I’d like to think that all my adventures in life were based on your dreams and ambitious spirit. That charged me to want to explore and see the world.

You were definitely my guardian. I did not worry and always felt safe. I almost had to protect the world from as you were a big force of energy. When you told the teachers they had permission to handle me if I acted up and you’d handle it when you got home.

For my remaining time on the earth I can never forget the constant reminder to eat vegetables and vitamins, save my money for a rainy day and don’t blow it and to take care of my “pretty” feet.

I remember being picked on at track practice for having beefy thighs. You told me, those guys are gonna pick on you but you’re going to be a beautiful handsome man when you grow up so just let it ride and let nature take its course, and that will shut them all up. You always told me to wear colors and embrace my beautiful complexion. I never walked around with my head down because you made sure I had pride in self, Something you always had in unmeasurable comparison. When you left the house for work or church, you were the flyest thing going.

House life was awesome with you. Singing gospel songs and 70s records of your high School era, listening to Mother’s Finest or The Brothers Johnson, wearing out the record player and cassette tapes while we did Saturday morning cleaning. I was so glad to get my own place with a dishwasher because I wasn’t allowed to use ours. Say to me “Two people isn’t enough to run the dishwasher”. You can do what you want to do under your own roof. inspiring me to WANT my own and become my own rule maker and inspire to create that “when I get my own place, I’m going to do this” type of dreams and future for myself.

You always gave me a lot of freedom and space to be myself. Initially you were against me having a summer job. But once I found the manual lawn mower, I would go around making money and you supported it as long as our grass was always mowed.

Me, Being the only boy of the family, and you a single mother, you’d always self assess if you did the right thing as an internal conflict. I’d watch you wondering If you were being tough enough or too soft. It wasn’t a magical book on how to raise a boy by yourself. I think you did the most excellent job one could do. As you said, “it doesn’t matter that you left mad or happy… you having the drive to get up and do something with your life is a gift to me in itself”. In retrospect, It was enough to get me through Marine Boot Camp like… “is that all you got??”

You always told me to live the life you and my dad were not able to have by uncontrollable circumstances. I’m not afraid of living, not afraid of confrontation, figuring things out and a big blessing to know how to read the room and keeping you from being angry, I became a skilled peace maker, which are beautiful life skills I learned in our house and can take anywhere.

You always said “ you know the business”, meaning you do your part. Act right and get good grades in school. You didn’t care for “C”, they were not celebrated. I’d be lectured on “B” like they were “D”s. You always pushed me to be better. Though I was “told off” a lot, when I made you happy, it was so much joy and the biggest smile one could ask for. You were proud of me. I loved knowing I was going to get that big smile and “that’s my pumpkin”..they were very endearing and instantly made me feel like I did something right. I loved when you were happy and all smiles. You always had hard complications in your life and you still tried to make me happy. You always gave the most thoughtful gifts and I never had an empty Christmas or Birthday. You always sacrificed for me. And our end of that bargain we made is that I will work hard and never need, financially. Not that you wouldn’t help me,but reiterated that you were not a bank.

I will miss our adult trips. meeting in Vegas, going for a dance, doing tours in San Francisco or dinner in San Diego for personal and work trips. You were so concerned for me getting out of the Marines and came to Arizona to help me set up my first apartment. I know the sadness in your heart when I decided to stay but you were very supportive of me building my own life. It was nice to see you come visit me and taking you to Mexico. You loved the desert so much. It was your escape. I enjoyed having you. Taking you shopping for sundresses at the boutiques in Arizona, jewelry and buying purses and artifacts for your sisters in Mexico because you knew it would be unique, playing with my puppies and hunting for Arizona rocks to put in the garden at your house are priceless memories I’ll never forget.

We as a family were devastated in 2006 when we got news of your first life scare. And we’re blessed to have you around for another 18 years. I came home for your 61st birthday because in our space we gave each other, I missed you.. we’d have our conflicts that kept us apart but you deserved a good birthday.So I sucked it up, I went all out like you did for me all my life and you praised me non stop and told me I did right by you and you were smiling non stop even with so much struggle you were going through. It was the happiest day of my life on your birthday! You had me crying tears of joy non stop while you, the tough one, whom I remember you saying, you’ll never cry in front of me again back in my high school days, shed a tear of happiness in return. We sat and shared dreams together while you finished eating your crawfish. It was a beautiful moment.

Who knew the worst day of my life was seeing those eyes speak but you couldn’t talk after your stroke. I understood every thing those big beautiful eyes were saying but not hearing you express yourself was absolutely foreign to me. This woman who expressed every concern everyday. It was truly painful to experience. Even then in the hospital, you gave me some powerful squeezes and hugs and it was my last touching sign I’d get from you.

I hope to still get signs from you that I’m doing right and making you smile and cheering me on!

I love you. You will always be the best mother one could ask for. You were meant for me. You always said, you gotta play the hands you were dealt. God gave us a hell of a hand, you would question “how are we going to win at life?” Yo took me to church, you got me a big brother, you worked two jobs at times, and sometimes you’d be too tired to discipline me. So you always said, “you know the business”… to get the job done, as a teammate through getting me out the house successfully, we were a good team for lacking a dad and husband. You took Dad roll, grandma took Mom, and my aunts and uncles and cousins all stepped in as aces up your sleeve when times got tough. We both came out tough as nails. A special kind of grit. Not for the weak. We both shared as a result and laughed and retrospected about it often. It made me stand very tall. A lot of people look to fathers for courage but I am PROUD to say there ain’t a man yet I’ve met, tougher or more courageous, with a don’t quit attitude, compared to my mother. Who put the “HER” in hero.

I will always be inspired by your intelligence and courage and I promise to continue to “know the business” and think about the best teammate I ever had, so i know when i meet you one day, I’ll be greeted with your big smile followed by a “there’s my champ!”

I love you eternally! Please get that rest! You worked very hard in this life! You deserve it!!!!
