Mama sure did love her boys and girls. I remember her always saying how handsome I was. She all about shoes and would ask if she could try mine. As I grew I would say well Mama you can't walk in these. You will either trip and fall or look like clown with style. The most memorable thing for me though is in my young preschool or kindergarten mind she made me believe I could push her beast of a Crown Victoria over the Memphis bridge arches. My whole family lovingly teased me over that. Well Mama you are now riding higher and faster than your foot could ever take you in an vehicle. Love you and I will see you when he calls me home.
