I will always remember how happy she was to see me and my mama go for a visit. She would meet you at the door with a big smile and a hug. She made you feel so welcome. And when we left she would wave bye with a smile, She always wanted us to stay longer. I remember our trip to the mountains way back in 2006, Uncle W.E. was my navigator and my mama and Aunt Joyce Ann was the back seat drivers. Made a lot of good memories, glad we took that trip.
