  5. My great grandmother was a very colorful person, and deserved the world with how kind she was, and how beautiful she was inside and out. Her loving grand daughter, Dawn Oliver speaks of her with kind words and loving memories. She tells stories to her children, Alecia, and Brianna, as well as myself. She will be missed very much, and remembered for who she was.. someone who showed love no matter what. Rest easy grammy Currie.

  9. My Dear Aunt Bin, Where can one start to praise her ? She was THE Saint in this family. She Always had a Smile and a sweet word or 2 to make everyone else feel her endless Love and Kindness. She was a beautiful woman, inside and out. As a lil child, I used to LOVE when she came to visit Us. She was soft spoken, spunky, chewed her nails to the bone and always had a lil sparkle in her eye. She could make everything "feel" alright even If she was having a rough time. She would always be so quick to tell stories about her kids, and grand kids that she was so proud of. She loved Nature, cake, cookies, her Blue dishes and glassware, soft blue sweaters, and her garden. She was always my go to person when I had good or bad news, she would just listen quietly, and her eyes would so sweetly look at you like she was feeling everything I shared with her. There will never be another like her, I was so Blessed to call her MY Aunt. I Love you and will always have a Special place in my heart for you.
