    My momma taught and believed in three things in life were not an option: church, school, and work. She gave me Jesus as a little girl... she always said "They can take your money, your house, your husband, but they can never take your education.... She showed me how to survive. She showed me how to work. She always said when you are afraid and scared to plead the blood of Jesus Christ, and I plead the blood of Jesus Christ, and don't listen to them lies from satan. She loved everybody unconditionally especially the homeless. She taught me tears are healing from God, so I will truly be healing. We were a team and I'm sure gonna miss you Lou.

    For the last 20 years I have had the most amazing inspiration from my mom. She was my best friend. Her favorite food for me to cook for her were my specialty hot dogs. We would sit for hours and talk about the lord. She would always be so uplifting to me. Such an anointed woman. She will truly be missed. She's was one of a kind and can't be replaced. She truly loved the lord with all her heart. Anytime you needed a number for a business or place call betty lou, if she didnt have it she would call the library to get it. She never let me down. I love her dearly. Thank you so much for leading me back to christ. I know your prayers and loving-kindness will help me in my journey. I love you from your daughter. Jacqueline

    My Grandmother, Betty Lou St. Clair, was the most Beautiful, Kindest, Humblest person I knew. We all knew. It didn't matter whether you knew her, more than five minutes or fifty years, whether you were her friend or her family, she had an impacting role in each and everyone of our lives. It was never a problem that she didn't have the materials in life that most people do. She gave more than that, she gave her knowledge of: Love, Respect and Kindness, Humility, Religion, Education, the list goes beyond. And for that you could completely be yourself with her, you could let every guard down and just be. She never judged or belittled, she always was there and listened. She welcomed any and everyone into her heart and home. Though while this hurts beyond any words most can fathom, I believe it's completely normal considering. But I know my grandmother would never want me or anyone else in this life to suffer or feel agony, she'd except all of us to keep moving through this rain. To think and express of the joys and laughter, the bonds she created and expressed in her everyday life. There's one thing that keeps playing in my head she'd continuously tell me over my years. She'd say... Shannon, they can take everything from you, but they can't take your knowledge. I just want to thank her, for giving me just that. The knowledge to live and love and share myself with the world as well as others like she once did. To thank her for every moment shared, these will be things I will always treasure, knowing that I got to have The Most, Wonderful, Glorious, Grandmother one could ever have been blessed with.
