This woman was so good to me, I will never forget her. She laughed out loud when I told all her nurses her nick name was "Tater Bug"! We talked about so of the good time and fun we had and I will always be a part of her family. She has precious grandchildren and great grand children and TaterBug I promise I will not let them forget you. Gods speed until we meet again. Tell Mommy and Aunt Charlottee and Uncle Hershal hello for me. And Kiss Stevie Joe, so he will say Yelk!
