Learned to love the earth, gardening, and shelling peas, from Mamaw. Good memories and good times! Many Christmas memories, holidays and many hot Summers together! I will miss her everyday until we reunite! I'll remember, the rest of my life, how her eyes lit up every time she told me the story of how she and Papaw met!
She will be missed by us all. So blessed she had 96 years on this earth!!
