Where to begin- All the family gatherings at Granddaddy‘s house, everyone was there. A genuine warmth with all my Aunts, Uncles and Cousins. My Dad with his Brownie camera, trying to capture the moments. He did. We have not lost all the footage.
Aunt Sara was such a wonderful Aunt. Terrell and I couldn’t wait to take Missy “trick-or-treating”. She was so cute. We didn’t have a sister. When John came along, all the more fun. Swimming at the pool in Summer, and Uncle Ed cooking burgers . Riding around looking at Christmas lights in the neighborhood.
Christmas mornings with Missy and John.
Over too soon. I talked to Sara every week or so. We were going to get together soon.
Our time is precious.
Much Love, Tony

John and Missy,

So sorry for your loss. Your mom was a wonderful woman who always made me, and I'm sure everyone else, fell welcome in her home. As a teenager, and then later as an adult.

She will be greatly missed.

Mrs Weaver was the perfect daunting mom that loved her kids more than any mom I know. She was so proud of you both! She was so much fun as the mom who always let me spend the night and stay up giggling keeping her awake...she was so nice about it. She also cooked a great meal. She loved her church. She was a fantastic fast driver and would fill the back of the station wagon with kids and gladly take them somewhere fun like the lake or six flags. John was spoiled...let’s just call it. He had her under his spell. She delighted in his creative mind. She loved Ed. She was so proud of Missy’s basketball talent and work ethic She loved to talk to you and was always laughing and smiling....she was love and support exemplified. We will miss you! Love J-bird
