Aunt Lovetia was truly a remarkable woman. Some of my favorite childhood memories are with her and Uncle Wilburn. It is a comfort to know she is now in the loving arms of our father and surrounded by those she loves. My heart,prayers and love go out to all my cousins. She will be truly missed. Say hello to Mom and Dad for me, will see you all again someday. Patti !!
