We plant this tree for my Aunt Joyce. She was such a kind, loving sweet soul who will be missed everyday. She will be missed by many who loved her as I loved my Aunt Joyce. May you rejoice with Jesus and all your family and friends in your beautiful after life. We will miss you.

I have so many great memories of this sweet lady, I don't know where to begin. Mrs Self has always been such a kind person, never said a mean word about anyone that I know of, she was a pleasure to visit, always loved to talk and I loved to her her laugh. She had an amazing memory, she could tell me dates of my entire family's birthdays etc, including the year. She was better than a computer when it came to memory. I will miss her so much, My heart goes out to her daughter (my BFF) since I was 6 years old Brenda Self Baggs (now a resident of North Carolina) & Her son Eddie Self who has been her primary caregiver for last few years, very dedicated and loyal son for sure, along with his wife Wanda. I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet Mama, but we all know she is no longer hurting or in pain. She is with all her loved ones that went to heaven before her, and friends as well, I can just hear all the laughter, yet we will all be sad as we have to say goodbye, she was a very special lady and God Bless the entire Self Family and Mrs Self you will always be in my heart, never forgotten. I love You! R.I.P.
