I am doing my best to make sure we have followed your wishes and done so in a way you would be proud of and approve. You taught me so many things but mostly to work hard and be diligent. Treat people we respect and kindness. We are taking care of Papa, as you Both have done for us our whole lives.

I loved going up to Polly & Bubbas. Anthony & Bubba would go out fishing and Polly and I would take off to craft stores, The Thrift Store, The Pink Store, just any place that looked interesting. We would laugh and carry on. Every time we would get to a register I would put my arm around her & say to the clerk, this is my favorite sister-n-law. Polly would start laughing and tell them I was her only sister-n-law. We would fill the truck up to the top.
If we weren't shopping we would be cooking or doing crafts. Our dreams was for them to move closer and Polly was going to have a designated place just to do crafts any time we wanted to. I would go down to the pier and fish after dinner as late as they would let me. The day we would pack to come back home, there would be many times that I would have to leave some of the stuff I bought at their house, till we would come back. I could tell a few more stories but I better not. Anthony passed Jan. 15th, 2020 and was buried Jan. 18th, 2020 and now Polly. Its just me and Bubba left, now. It has left such a big void in my life. I miss you already!
Love & prayers,
Vicki
