Jeff and family,

She sounds like she was a bit of a pistol. I like pistols. I am very sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is a difficult time. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. God bless her.

We are blessed to have had our time with aunt mae, one the kindest most generous, loving people I have ever met. I jokingly called her other momma cause when I was little she and uncle Cecil would scoop me up and off we went. To my cousin's I love you and the world is better place because of Mae Jewel.

I told Vicki that I want to be like you when I grow up, Mae. You were such an independent woman and sassy like they said. Rest in peace
