  • Dear cousins Valerie and Erica, although I was Aunt "T's" niece by marriage, I felt like she was truly an auntie to not only David, but to me and Jayden as well. She exuded love and never hesitated to share a smile, a kind word or a hug. She had a knack for telling you what she really thought so that you knew it was coming from a place of love and concern. She left a lasting impression on us all with her dedication and service to the community in which she lived. She touched our lives, our hearts and no doubt the lives of many others. We feel blessed to have known her and she will be dearly missed. David, Loreen and Jayden Fields
