Grandmaw, you were a precious lady that Loved and GLORIFIED our LORD and SAVIOR, even through all the storms of life, you never wavered. As I think of you... this is what comes to mind:
Philippians 3:13-14 NIV
13"Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which GOD has called me heavenward in CHRIST JESUS."
You have accomplished it Grandmaw and I know your smile is as big as the moon... as you are rejoicing in the arms of JESUS.
We love you so very much and you will be FOREVER missed!!

Mary Adaway, was a strong servant of God, who dedicated her life to raising her eleven children, and caring for her husband. She was one of the strongest women I ever had the honor of knowing. She is in God's loving arms now... rest in peace
