It's me again ... Memories are flowing like raging rivers ....
I remember always being at yours & Uncle Ray's , not because I had to but because I didn't want to be anywhere else !!! Dad, Uncle Ray, YOU, with that little hand on your hip , smile on your face, and singing the rafters down ... ROCKY TOP !!!!
I miss these treasured times !!! Dad's Banjo , Uncle Ray's Guitar and you, just being you !!!!! I am forever grateful to have them in my heart until we are together again !!!!!
Memories ... of you & I talking on the phone about Jesus & the bible ... You never failed to encourage me , comfort me and make me feel incredibly loved !!!

My sweet precious nanna or as I mostly called her momma , I've never had to be without you and frankly I'm quite lost. You loved me from the depths of your soul.. I never did wrong in your eyes and if I did you would let me know in your famous way that could set even a criminal straight. Your smile could light up a room and you never met a stranger. I was always so amazed at how you carried yourself and hoped I could be half as good as you when I grew up, I have the best childhood memories because of you and Poppy I know I thanked you a thousand times but it still doesn't feel like I did it enough. I miss your laugh , I miss your voice , I just miss you. so one last time I love you too the Moon and back!!

Aunt Cel is in all my earliest and fondest childhood memories. Holidays and family gatherings were so special when she and Uncle Ray and Tim were there. It was a treat when we could convince her to sing "Rocky Top" while Uncle Ray accompanied her on his guitar. She was filled with laughter, love and a zest for life. Her smile was contagious. I remember how special it was when she came 3 hours to help me select the perfect dress for my first prom. I loved her dearly. She was such a special woman and it was a privilege to have her for an aunt.

Accept my deepest condolences in your loss. As you cope during this difficult time, find strength in the words: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those....will hear his voice and come out.”
