So many good memories! One of my favorites was when I took her and Kody to Hindoston Falls, she was a little scared and not quite sure about walking out on the rocks in the middle of the river (Kody said, hold my hand mamaw it will be ok) she done it so I could take pictures of her and Kody. When we finished, with a smile she said, "that wasn't so bad". She is a very special person who's heart was so full of love for her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and their families. An honor and privilege to have had the chance to know her and the time that I was able to spend with her. Forever in my heart!

I always loved talking to her at church services. She was so friendly and easy to talk to. She always seemed to be smiling and cheery and wanted to be at services even when it was not easy for her. I will miss seeing her there.
