I know there will be a day again for me to see her beautiful face. love you so much aunty. love your niece Shannan Roberson... ” - Shannan Roberson

“My sister Corliss. Corliss and I were supposed to be sent to Cuba to attend medical school. Corliss and I worked with the doctor. The first time we got to watch a baby delivered we both almost fainted. She wanted to be an optometrist and I was going to be a OB/GYN doctor. She was so smart. And was in love with my play brother Mark Boutte, who had lived with us in the States for awhile. Corliss eventually stopped having to wear her back brace. She never complained about it for as long as I knew her. She was a brilliant young woman and would have made a wonderful doctor. You are always in my heart. Peace and Blessings. ” - Leslie Cathey (Wilson)
