Mccoy -- In Loving Memory of Jessie McCoy June 15, 1925 - February 20, 2000MOTHERWho bounced me on her knee? Who worried when I climbed a tree? Who taught me right from wrong? Who was by my side all along? Who dried my tears, cleaned my cuts, and calmed my fears? Who grew more loving through the years? Who made me the best person I could possibly be? Who showed me the truth When I just couldn't see? Who could tell when I was lying? Whose love was always undying? My sweet mother who lives with God now She's looking down on me and she see's how I'm suffering. Then she whispers,"I'm at peace and I'll love you forever, You must believe I'll leave you never."Your loving daughter, Vangie, Miguel & Robert

Mccoy -- In Loving Memory of Jessie McCoy June 15, 1925 - February 20, 2000I remember a child... Sitting on grandma's knee. But look how the years have flown, For that child was me.The goodies and the joys, The boxes filled with toys. The way you used to laugh & love, are things I miss so much.I can't say good-bye, grandma, it hurts to let you go... I wish I could have told you, That I really love you so. A part of me is missing, Now that you are gone. I'll do my best to make you proud, To end the tears and learn to carry on. Love, Santiago & Georgia Marquez

Self -- Perhaps you brought or served food. Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a floral piece, if so, we saw it there. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words as any friends could say; perhaps you were not there at all, just thought or prayed for us that day. Whatever the part the Lord had you play to console our hearts, we thank you so much, and may He bless each one of you. The family of Betty Lou Self. French Mortuary, 10500 Lomas Blvd. NE.
