    I feel enriched in having the opportunity to have known Towana. She radiated with a sense of peace every time I saw her. Rest in peace “T” and bless her family in their loss.

    Towana, I’m so grateful that we learned as kids that our moms were not just best friends but cousins. Their relationship gave us a lot of time together growing up as kids through adulthood. You were a second mom to my children. They affectionately called you “Aunt Towana.” Billie, Tina and family.. I am praying for all of us as we navigate through these rough waters of life. I love you… Always & Forever

  3. Sharing your sadness as you prepare to say goodbye to your love one. No doubt you have made fond memories, which would resurface from time to time. May those memories and God’s words in the Bible bring you some measure of comfort. Thinking of you all.
