“GRAM~ My memories are foggy, but this is you. May you rest in peace my love. I remember my mother telling me I was supposed to go as well at the last minute she refused. This situation hurt her in the worst way. She was never the same again. Now I understand why she would become upset when I asked about her family. This would make me mental too. She would say random statements about Jonestown and don't let people brainwash your head. We worshiped God, but wouldn't step foot in a church. The only time she did, she ended going OFF on the preacher. I now know he triggered memories for her and she ran out, poor thing. Guess that why I work in mental health field. Gram I was a cosmetologist as well as taught by Auntie Vickie in her shop on Adam's. DNA ain't no joke! R.I.P little lady you will NOT BE FORGOTTEN SWEETS...” - Pamela Rose
