Diddy was a very special, loving, caring person. She loved life and was confident in herself and knew exactly what she wanted out of her life, that was to be a housewife and mother. She was satisfied with the simple things in life. She loved living in Key West. She and Roy loved to ride around the boulevard, go to dairy queen, and cruise Duval Street in their earlier and later years in life. Life was simple back then, but she knew who she was and she had a very strong personality to go with it. In her earlier years she loved the sororities, she loved to cook, of which she truly specialized in making the best flan in Key West. They had a wonderful group of friends and they loved eating in nice restaurants and just enjoying life.
She truly was special and made friends very easily, she never met a stranger. Roy was her world and she is now at last with him for eternity. She dearly loved her two children, and would do anything for them. The kindest person you will ever know, a good woman with lots of values and character. The whole family was blessed to have her. She would make you laugh at the drop of a hat. She was always proud to be a true native, Key West Conch! She also had a strong faith in God.
