Aunts are a special part of ones family and you were very special to me. I remember the jokes you use to share with me and we would have the best time laughing. You always had a kiss for me and always wanted for us to go dancing. You and Mom can now "Little Foot" together again because she has been waiting for you. You will never be forgotten. I love you and will miss you always ~ Liz ...?

She loved blue bonnets.
She picked the cleanest cotton.
She loved sitting on the front porch.
She loved icecream. Blue Bell was the best.
She loved her coffee black.
She loved dancing at the Rice hotel.
She loved a man in uniform.
She loved her hair and nails done. No red, just a pale pink please.
She wore her white beautician uniform proudly.
She made the best sandwiches.
She was a vibrant person. She was opinionated. She was stubborn. She was funny.
She would 'tell you like it is.'
She was the best grandmother anyone could ever ask for.
She would play 'little foot' with us.
She would dance the hookie pookie.
She would sing 'Peter Cotton Tail'.
She would laugh when we did 'Birdies Nest' on her newly teased hair.
She would become irritated when her night gown was hidden under her pillow.
She would make sure we were bathed and ready for 'Jack Tripper.'
She never forgot a holiday. A birthday.
She told stories of her younger years.
She loved Grandma Prigge.
She loved her brothers and sisters. She told stories how she and her brother would pinch eachother.
She loved only one man.
She loved her children.
She loved their children.
She was strong.
She was proud.
She was beautiful.
She was the epitome of beauty. Of femininity. Of elegance.
She danced her last dance into the arms of the Lord.
She will forever be missed.
