Some of my favorite childhood memories were spending time with my Aunt Joan and Uncle Charles. I always looked forward to seeing her, she was always so happy to see me and was so good to me! So Wonderful to have these memories of her and such a beautiful tribute video.

I was honored to have been blessed with the deep, very special friendship I shared with Queen Mary. We shared many wonderful chats together..she loved to talk about her family. We shared many memories together..going to Memphis to appointments and finding somewhere good to eat for lunch, shopping. Going to see the Singing Christmas Tree at the First Baptist Church..how her face lit up wirh wonder at the beautiful singing. Going to see Dr Fraziers beautiful light display. Our hot tamales from Dshys and how much she loved a good hamburger. I will miss her witty sarcastic sense of humor and telling me like it is.. that was just Mary. And I wouldnt have had her any other way. She often told me we favored and we musr be sisters! I took that as a great compliment! I cherished our friendship and I feel her tremendous loss daily. She is happy now..she is with her beloved Charles. Our world is a little dimmer without you in it. Fly high my friend, fly high.

Went to visit you today (Mothers Day) and take you some of my fresh baked banana bread. Was sad I missed you but glad I got to see you in the hospital a few weeks ago. Since losing mother several years ago I was dealing with serious health issues myself and was unable to visit you and Charles as I had in the past. I'm glad I got to see you and tell you why I had not been to visit. You were so wonderful to mother (Granny Joyce) and I am sad that I didn't get to spend more time with you and Charles these last few years to return the same care and attention you showed her. I know your suffering is over and you are in a happy place. Give my best to Charles and give mother a huge hug for me. I miss you all!
