  1. Aunt Rae was always bringing happiness and laughter wherever she went. I truly believe she’s a big part of why I make sound effects and funny noises while doing everyday normal things. I’ll always smile when I think of her. Thank you for everything you brought into the world Aunt Rae.

  2. Sorry for your loss. We have lost our precious jewel. Our sweet sister Maida Rae has left us and we are heartbroken. The thought of never seeing her again brings tears. She was the shining light in our family, of all of us she was the best. She was so kind and caring, never judging, never taking sides, she loved us all equally. Nobody could ever stay mad or sad when Rae was around. She had the most wonderful sense of humor, although at times quite mischievous. She was much loved by all and will be much missed by all. She has left me with a deep hurting hole inside that will never heal. I love you little sister. Your spirit will live forever in our hearts. I love you! Your big sister. Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.

  3. Aunt Rae had this infectious sense of humor no matter how bad of a day someone was having she always made it better, For example last year my dad was in the hospital after having a 2nd heart surgery and to take my mind off of it she kept cracking jokes , I couldn’t worry or feel bad because I was laughing so hard, if Angel’s exist Aunt Rae definitely was and is one .
