My MeeMaw was a very dignified person.
We had so many good times together- from dinner at daddy’s to a trip to Florida. She loved flowers and could grow anything. She was especially my friend when I was a teenager- I remember talking to her about our boyfriends. (Seems silly now but it is a big memory of mine). She was the best and I will miss her terribly. I love you. Fly free MeeMaw on the wings of the butterflies that you loved so much.
