Just imagine the scene. Tucker greets her at the gate with a hug. MaMaw and PawPaw are standing just behind him, beaming with smiles. Behind them is a huge crowd to welcome her home. She takes a deep easy breath of gloriously clean warm air. No more heavy oxygen bottles. No more weakness, aches and pains.

Looking forward to seeing her again. It'll be good to hear her call me Tee-num again (whatever that means).

What can I say about Aunt Sammie. My earliest memories are of shopping with her, watching her put on her makeup in the morning when I spent the night with her with her cup of coffee on the sink,typing on her typewriter when I went to work with her. She was my "cool" aunt who spent so much time with me. I will miss her dearly.
