I love and miss you so much Mama.
I wish I could have been there for you, when you needed me.
The days aren't so bright anymore since you went home.
I'll see you on the other side of the stars, my beautiful mama.

My sincere condolences for Mrs Henderson’s passing.
Losing a pillar in the family must be really difficult to endure. But God, our Creator, will always grant peace to those seeking it. This peace will help you to make good decisions during this painful period.(Philippians 4:6,7)

Rest in Peace Lillie Mae, and may your loved ones find peace during this difficult time..

Tammy Stewart

November 23, 2019

Since grandma lived in Texas and I in Georgia, we didn't get to see one another very often. I remembered this week that we used to write letters to one another before the internet. I save all letters and cards that anyone ever sends me and I was able to find some of those letters. I will cherish them forever. She would tell me about her little animals and talk about how much she loved me. My mom, Debbie, would tell me about conversations she had with grandma so I have those memories too. She will be missed. I love you grandma, your granddaughter Tammy.
