While Violet was known as "Big Mama" my mother, Elsie, is known as "Little Mama".
Two days after my parents' 72nd anniversary on 29 November 2014, and after several years of declining health which actually was part of her transitioning process, shortly after 6 am on Monday, 1 December 2014, "Little Mama" passed, at the age of 88.
Born on 18 February 1926, now in the process of transitioning from the physical earth to the spirit world her soul will soon join those of "Big Mama" and "Aunt Ruth" (her mother) in heaven. As well as the many others who've gone before her.
While funeral arrangements have been made through the Briscoe-Tonic Funeral Home in Mechanicsville MD the visitation, funeral mass, interment and repast will be held at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church at 22375 Three Notch Road in Lexington Park MD on Tuesday, 9 December.
Flowers should be sent to Immaculate Heart of Mary Church for delivery on Tuesday morning, between 8 and 9:45 am.
Viewing will take place from 10 until 11, followed by a Christian Funeral Mass from 11 until 12 noon. Followed by interment. And then a repast.
