Bobbie A Dickens II left a message on March 27, 2020:
Words cannot express how lost I feel without you. You were there for me in the best and in the darkest times. You being gone just means I have to hold fast to those memories and all the wisdom you instilled in me. You were more than a mother to me, you were a counselor, a sounding board for any advice, a great shopping companion, a friend, and you taught me everything I know from cooking, cleaning, sewing, DIY crafts, housekeeping, gardening, decorating, and the list goes on, but the best thing I learned from you is to love unconditionally and showing Grace and mercy when I didn't deserve it. I know we had our discussions and you were always right, and I think we were alike than different and I am proud to have been called your son. With Dad you both made a home for all four of your children, and you took pride in everything you did. You made sure all of us had the best education possible and you wanted us to always strive for the best, but to take victory in the little things. I will never stop asking you for advice and even though you aren't a call or close drive away I know I can hear your voice and hear your advice. Just know your advice didn't fall to deaf ears I heard every word. It's going to be hard to live life without you, but you planted all those seeds of wisdom throughout my lifetime and you cultivated and tended to my needs. It is now my turn to lead by example to your precious granddaughter. I know she loved you and learned so much from you. I could write books on all the great things you said and did, and maybe one day I will, but for now I leave this. You left a legacy and you touched so many lives with your love. I will continue that legacy to love others unconditionally. Forever grateful for the life you gave me and for the lessons you left. Never goodbye, but see you later
