“I am the queen, and the Sergeant is still barking orders. I have to be the backbone. I have been and I will be, I check on each and everyone to make sure they’re doing what they need to be doing. Am I in a dark place? I am in a real dark place. But I know that there [is] going to be light at the end of the tunnel.”

“And you know what? When Daniel was in the lion’s den, he never worried about the lions. He always stayed focused. And you see what happened to him, and that’s what’s going to happen to them, and I believe it within my heart. And I’m here to make sure that my grandchildren and those two little greats have the love that they need and the guidance that they need.”
