Aunt Tootie you will truly be missed. You will be remembered each day right from the start, for the memories that we shared forever live within our hearts. I remember when we used to end our trick or treating nights at your house. We had so much fun. Love you and Uncle Eddie forever always. Trina and Family ❤️

To the Jefferson family my family. Words cannot express the heartbreak you are experiencing at this moment. I am grateful that granny was apart of my life from a child to an adult, like she was in yours. She lived a life full of love and she was always so honest in the sweetest way. I am glad that now she is resting peacefully with her soulmate (grandad Jefferson) in heaven. Let’s not take this moment as a goodbye, but I will see you later. With love Ciera.

My Auntie a woman of great strength and Lots of energy and perseverance. She went over and above for her husband and for her family. There was not too much she couldn't do. She knew just as much about the Jefferson history as her own and shared so much of that history with me. I never heard her say I can't and all that knew her should take on and hold on to a part of this small Woman in Stature but a powerful Character. Auntie I know the squirrels miss you feeding them. My prayers to the Smith Jefferson Family

My condolences to you all. She was very special and better to me than my own mother. Love and sadness can go hand-in-hand but it was my joy to have her in my life like she was for all her family.
