Memaw was and is a beautiful lady. Enjoyed many occasions of fishing, flea marketing, gardening, and sitting on front porch sharing stories of life with her and Pawpaw. They will now be back together. Her carrot cake was the best! She was always full of life and happy. She was the grandest lady I have ever known. She will be missed but never forgotten. Always in my heart and memories. I love you Memaw!!
