Sweet, sweet lady, neighbor & friend! A loving wife & mother.....even when a son brought home a litter of newborn possums to raise! A dedicated Christian who loved God & shared this love with all! She & W. C shared a special, hand holding kind of love. She could be stern but, she had a twinkle in her eyes & a joyful laugh also! I also have a story about a phone call from her late one night that involved a Conway Twitty song that she acted mad at me about until she burst out laughing!! Loved this lady! We have all been blessed by having known her! Our Love & Prayers to W. C. Donnie, Jimmy & family
