Sending my love and condolences to all of the family. I have many fond memories of Sissy growing up. I remember walking down our dirt road or riding the bike and she always had smiles and sweet things to say. She was such a gentle, loving person and truly was an angel on earth who will be greatly missed. I pray comfort for all of her loved ones. My deepest sympathy, Neva Dawn Locklear
