To know Sissy was an honor. She never met a stranger. She loved her family she always loved to tell you how blessed she was. Miss Sissy loved the outdoors. I lived by her for years she was such an inspiration to me. I love her and I am going to miss her. She was a wonderful friend.

I have known Sissy all my life.Sissy was friends with my family . Although she wasn't working at the time of my Dads death she was with us in prayer. She has been my pillar since Mom and Jane died, I don't know if I could have made it without her.
I feel as if I have gained another Angel.
Prayers for the family.
