  1. Cookie was more my sister than in-law, I was just a toddler when she came into our family. I remember spending hours watching her do her make up and roll her hair. She used to let me pretend to put on make up carefully teaching me to use an eye lash curler. She made my first prom dress, didn’t snitch on me when I came home past curfew and was adored by all of my friends. I always looked forward to those Friday nights when I got to babysit my nieces, it always meant I got to stay the whole weekend. Holidays were always special because we would make some type of craft to give my mom. Cookie would sew the girls Christmas dresses, Easter outfits and Halloween costumes. When my nephew was born ( on my moms birthday) she let everyone think she had another girl only to pull back the blanket to surprise us! When they moved to New York I was devastated, so lost without my sissy and the kids. The minute I graduated high school I moved to New York to live with her. It was an eye opening year but one of the best times of my life. Cookie amazed me. She always managed to make any house a home and you never doubted her love for her children. She was one of the strongest women I knew. No matter what life threw at her she faced it head on, no complaining or feeling sorry for herself. She was kind, compassionate and dedicated to her family. I am so blessed to have had her in my life and very grateful for my beautiful nieces and nephews she brought into our family. I know without a doubt my mom was waiting at Heavens gate for her “daughter “ Cookie …. I can only imagine what they’re up to but I trust they’ll always watch over us. Love you Cookie…
