I remember being in the garden with her and shelling peas of course back then I hated but if I could have those days back I’d cherish them. I’ll miss going to church with her and singing! When I was a little girl I used to go and spend my summer vacation with her and in second grade I lived with her for a little while and remember riding the school bus. I’ll miss her singing church songs when we used to go to lake Texoma her and papa would always sing! I love them and miss them both dearly! She was a beautiful soul who had a lot of love for so many.
