Aunt Inis was so sweet to our family and was our rock when we lost our Dad when we were very young. Uncle George and Aunt Inis were legendary for their love of family. I know she will be greatly missed and will live forever in our hearts.

Dear Sandy, Chuck, Holly, Mark & Grandchildren---I wanted to share this poem that reminds me of Mom/Memaw.

When I die give what's left of me away
to children.
And if you need to cry, cry for those
walking the street beside you.
And when you need me, put your arms
around anyone and give them what you need to give me.

I want to leave you something, something better
than words or sounds.

Look for me in the people I've known or loved,
and if you cannot give me away,
at least let me live in your eyes
and not on your mind.

You can love me most by letting
hands touch hands,
by letting bodies touch bodies,
and by letting go of children
that need to be free.

Love doesn't die, people do.
So, when all that's left of me is love,
give me away.

Love you all for being so dear, accepting & loving.

I met Mrs. Akins as a teenager and was impressed with her strength, charm and that sweet southern accent! She made me feel comfortable while visiting in her home and never had a harsh word to say about anyone... she had a very pretty smile and the sincerity that went with it was unforgettable...I envied Sandy, having such a great Friend in her mother... This lady will be missed by many...
God Bless....

To Sandy and Family.
I am so sorry for your loss of your Mom / Memaw... She was one of a kind. I will never ever forget her. She first became my friend and then as I grew closer to her, I felt as she was there to fill the void that my own Mom left when she passed in 2005. I loved her dearly and will miss her. Rest in Peace Sweet Lady.
