Ann, Ricky, Donna, Vickie Lynn, Shane. May God keep you at this difficult time. May He comfort you and give you peace. Tootsie was my Aunt and I loved her very much. She will surely be missed, but know that she is in a better place. She took care of me and my brothers when our Mother, Mabel Hunnicutt Stevenson, had to work. She made the best potato salad I have ever eaten. Our prayers are with all of you.
Judy and Charles Johnson, Augusta, Ga.

Vickie I got to know and love first and over the years our families became SO close....sharing many happy and fun/funny memories. Tootsie was like one of my
Cooper aunts which to me can be no bigger compliment! She was precious to me.
To this wonderful family I send my love and prayers......
