mike memory of her is her singing.aint no grave can keep my body down, she had a beautiful high voice and dressed to the T s.she would get to singing and dancing a little in those bright red shoes. the whole church would be singing and a clapping one of my favorite thing of the first memory of her is kindness. there was a young mom that went to our church who wanted to buy her little girl a dress for a family funeral. I only had a few dollars to give her so I asked your mom to help. she spent 50 to my 3 bucks. that little girl got some very cute clothes . I told her I felt bad that I could only give a little. she said we both helped. she was just so kind.
