Heaven has gained a wonderful person. Queen B has been a shining star in my life for over 40 years. You have always been an example of a strong , confident, resilient, beautiful Black woman and you even gave birth to one. Thank you for the love you gave freely, the laughs we shared in and for welcoming my younger self into your home and family. Rest in Power Queen 🖤
