Sissy was one of the sweetest most kind hearted person I 've ever known. I remember Grandmaw and I going to church and she always played with my hair. I know Heaven is much sweeter with her there. Love you Sissy. Prayers for the rest of her family and friends. She left this world with many friends behind.
