Aunt Jewell was always very sweet and kind to me but never minded asking me hard questions in my younger days to help keep me in line. She also seemed to make me laugh with the way she said things, she was very funny. I know I hadn’t seen her a lot over the last 20 years since getting married and moving to Tennessee but I loved her very much and she will always be in my thoughts. She was definitely one of a kind. I wish I had talked to her one more time. Love you Aunt Jewell. Yvonne, Jimmy and Greg I will pray for you to have peace during this time because I know you will definitely miss her.
