Wanted to share a photo from your vows as well.

Mrs. Jones was my neighbor growing up and I grew very fond of her and her husband Tom! They were both very warm and welcoming people. I often helped Mr. & Mrs. Jones in their garden, and they both taught me so much about flowers especially. One of my favorite parts about working with them was that we would always enjoy lunch together. We'd all sit down and have Pineapple sandwiches, and little debbies for desert. Mrs. Jones will certainly be missed!

Aunt Sara,
I am so sorry that we are not there to celebrate your life. You were so important to our family. It was so much fun to drive to Georgia each year to visit you, you would cook all week to prepare for our arrival. There were cakes, boiled peanuts, cookies. How lucky we were!
I remember how excited you were to renew your vows with Uncle Tom. Your dress was so pretty and pink and you couldn't wait to show us. What a special day!
And I still remember the visit in Cancun when our trips coincided. We got to all go to the show together. What a lovely evening.
I know that Tom was happy to see you when you arrived in heaven. Please watch over my dad, he could use an angel watching over him right now.
Love,
Andra Chapman Kinlaw
