I will miss your laughter, smile, personality, your friendship . I will never forget all the times we travel together. The first time you took me to a Casino. She played this game with pigs and I couldn't keep from laughing. She loved her flying and always so proud of her family. May you rest in peace . Love you very much.

We were friends for 43 years, through ups and downs, sometimes disagreeing, but continued to love and respect each other. We travelled many miles together, both in the air and on land. What memories! Mary made sure that local airports received appreciation "goodie bags" of homemade cookies, candy, etc. She usually took charge when she thought things got out of hand. She loved to spar with my husband, J. C., recently saying, "Tell the ole boy the hole is in my heart, not my head!"
How she is missed!

One of my favorite memories of Nannie. I love how she loved our foster children as permanent members of the family. ❤️
