I'll never forget the car rides to Leesburg VA & the silly songs she taught us like My Aunt Fanny & Little Rabbit Foo Foo. I had fun teaching them to my son when he was little. My sympathy to my cousins & their families as well as my aunts & uncles. Love you...

Kay, Mike, & Michael

Our hearts go out to her family, and her family of friends at church. We loved her and will miss her deeply.
She was a friend to everyone she knew. We will see you again one day.
Your smile lives on in my heart.

 "Toots" will be missed by everyone that she touched.
 She was always a sweetheart,
but was never afraid to say what was on her mind,
I always loved talking to her.

Thinking of you in your time of sorrow.
Bless you and your family. So sorry for your loss.
What a wonderful mom you have been blessed to have.

 Aunt Toots,
My favorite Aunt!! You reminded me so much of my own grandmother! You loved me unconditionally! You never gave up on me, I could always count on you to lend me your ear. I'll miss the "snackees" you gave us for picking you up for the family dinners. Most of all we will miss you!! I don't want to cry as I know you will no long feel pain, have a hard time walking and you'll breath so much easier on your own. And I know you were tired and ready to rest!! You were ready to go "home". I didn't want to be selfish, to have you stay any longer, but I will truly miss you!! May the heavens keep you safe, and let your wings soar softly!!! We love you, Aunt Toots, rest now, as you'll be watching over us all, our guardian angel!!!

All our love always,
Sam, Nidie, Samantha, Brandon, and Kristen (Calaman)
