  2. Kristiana (Long) Barkley says:

    I will sincerely miss my Aunt Louella who I named Aunt Jemima when I was little. I remember her having any kids movie you could think of and always taking hours to choose which one to watch when we would go to visit her. She was a very kind person and that kind heartedness seemed to rub off onto you when you were in her presence. Although we will all miss you, the pain is now over. Rest easy Aunt Jemima. Heaven couldn’t wait for you. Love always!
