She talked about her children with so much love and admiration. She was a blessing to the people who knew her. I learned so many things about cooking and cleaning from her. I can hear her telling me "now let me show you how to do that it's easier this way". And laugh.she will be missed

Our Mom was a special person and loved by all. She was the Florence Nightingale of our family. She took care of every one that was sick. She will be missed by all. We love you Mom

I brought meals to Ms Poindexter for a while and I just loved her so much. She was always a joy to see her, even when she didnt feel real well. She loved her family. She is with God, singing and dancing!
