A year has passed already, where did it go? This time last year I lost my BEST friend, and that is you Mommy.I love you so much that it hurts my heart. It just doesn't seem right that you are not on this earth with me. I can no longer call you on the phone. I miss you laughing at me and calling me simple. May you rest in peace. I LOVE YOU.

Mommy I miss you so much! I love you. I look forward to seeing you again. It's been one whole year that you have been gone. Thank you for giving me the priceless love that you have. Mommy because of you...I really appreciate the highs and the lows...the riches and the poors...the haves and the have nots. Mommy thank you for the love that you have given me.

Mommy, I think I have the strength now to e-mail you. It's 2009, I recall talking to you this time last year and how we are going to bed before the New Year actually comes. I miss talking to you everyday at 9 o'clock p.m. I wait for that time, to call you, knowing that I can't talk to you any more. I still have your messages on my cell phone, it feels good to hear your voice. A few of the messages its saying, "Hi Saundra, it'm me Mommy and I'm doing okay." It makes me smile and cry at the same time. I just think of what you have always told me, and that was to MOVE ON. Trust me I guess I will always have my moments of you Mommy. I have your picture of you and I on my cell phone, and no matter where I am, I am always kissing it and say Mommy I Miss and Love You. You are a Mother that a lot of people wish they had as a Mother. Mommy I can honestly say, if if wasn't for you and what you have given to all of us, and that is LOVE. I would not have been able to do what I have done in terms of having my two children. I thank you for showing and giving me so much LOVE, in return God wants me to give my children what you have given me. If I didn't know how to LOVE then I wouldn't have had my children. Thank You so much. It's a New Year and I must move on as you would want me to. I started this e-mail and though that I was strong, and here comes the crying and tears. Mommy I LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH.Posted: 01/02/2009 by Saundra Grace of toledo, ohio,

My deepest sympathy to all of Minnie's children and brother and sisters. Minnie and I shared some wonderful memories and laughs together through the years. I feel so bad I didn't know she was sick. This has been a very sad year for me. Right from the start we lost three dear family members three weeks apart and two months later a tragic accident took my grandson's life.I don't drive at night anymore so I won't be able to be there tomorrow. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you allPosted: 11/06/2008 by Elsie Thimas of Wareham, MA, USA

Minnie will be missed by many I am so glad I had a chance to meet her. She was a very warm and kind woman. Saundra and Renee talked about their mother a lot I felt she was my mommie at times. I know this is a sad time for the family but the Lord has her now and he will take good care of her until you'll are able to see her again. I pray the blood of Jesus over the entire family and ask the Lord to give you strength during these trying times in Jesus name I pray Posted: 11/05/2008 by Janice L.

Mrs. Dominga,.. Minnie Pina,.. Minnie Grace,..Minnie Mouse,.. Nana,.. Auntie,... Sister and Friend.
To my friend and Comadre Kathy and my god-daughter Marlo, Marlon, little Miss Nola, and Rodney; to Brenda, Andrea, Robbie, Saundra, Rene, my childhood friends… I am so very sorry for your loss. I ask the Lord for grace, mercy and peace to be with you all in the passing of our Minnie from this life into internal life. I wish I could be with you to reassure you of my love and support for you all at this difficult time. I have learned that this is a serious transition that requires heavenly help. Saundra, my heart is with you not to assign too much prominence and importance to death, although I am not minimizing the strength of death, I only ask that you believe more of the power of life than the fact of death. I know you know this…that God is the love and the liberty that is stronger than the strength of tragedy and death.
I want you to know that I enjoyed knowing Ms Minnie. I have many memories of Minnie, especially Kathy… when we were young and dumb, she would tell it to us straight; remember when we would get all cute and want to use her car to go out, she would wait until we were good and ready to step out and then she would let us know we were not going to use HER car. We use to be so mad at her. She would say with a smirk, “That’s my --- car!”… lol. My, my, my, that's my Minnie.
She was definitely the QUEEN of drama queens. I and will always hold those memories close. I will miss visiting her on my visits home to NB. Mrs. Minnie Grace was another original post in our West End community that has now gone on. There are not many more left…
Rest in peace Minnie Mouse; enjoy your new life in the best place ever. To my Camadre Kathy, may the love of our Jesus Christ be with you tenderly and mightily to guide your steps and comfort your heart and sustain you in hope.
I love you all. In closing, remember this. Minnie had seven kids that she raised as a single parent. She was extremely proud of you all for being so successful, a few have degrees, one has her masters, others are making their way independently. She produced contributing citizens to her community. She was blessed to be spoiled rotten by all of them. She lived to see her great grandchildren; she lived just a day short of witnessing in person the first African American President elected. She was blessed to have loving daughters who surrounded her and met her every need. Minnie Grace was loved and it gave her the power to do it her way… to go home to her maker in her sleep….
Peace, love and chicken and rice soup

To the Pina, Grace family, my heart is sad to hear about Minnie, but I know she is not suffering. She was good friends with my Uncle Tony, who passed a while ago. She use to call me meals-on-wheels. I loved her sense of humor, her strength,and quick wit. She was very proud of her family. She will be missed. God bless you all. Posted: 11/05/2008 by Viola Pina of New Bedford, Ma, USA
