There are so many memories I could share but the one that stands out the most to me is you telling me the story about how when I was born you told my mama that I was your baby and she would let you rock me in the rocking chair and would tie us into the chair with her belt from her robe so you didn't drop me and that you would rock me all day if she would let you. You will always be my Mama-Gail and I'll forever miss our heat to heart talks and your comforting words and hugs 💜
