I hope and trust that the pains of your loss will soon be replaced by fond memories of the past. Be thankful for having such a mom.........she was great. The last time Ella and I spoke, we talked of the Lord, forgiveness, redemption and faith. I know she is with him. What a reunion there must be in heaven.

God Bless and Keep You All

Aunt Sis how I will miss and love you forever. You were strong and independent but also loving and giving. Hard to find all those things in one person but you did it. What fun we had traveling to Alabama football games. Lots of giggling. Good times remembered.
