I am so sad to hear this beautiful, caring woman has passed. My special memories include the many nights we sat at her kitchen table playing cards, drinking coffee and wine coolers ,eating venison and her canned biscuit donuts. She will always be in my heart. May God comfort her family I know she loved so much.

Though our hearts are full due to the loss of our precious mama. I would like to say that her last week with us she spent talking about her love for her children, grandchildren, sisters, brothers and other family members and friends. There were a lot of good memories talked about and how much she missed those that have passed on. Although, we were not ready to let her go, she knew her days were short and she was tired and ready to meet Jesus, both physically and spiritually. I hope that she can look down and see how much she was truly loved. No more struggling sweet mama. Rejoice with your Father and family that are with you. Your loving daughter, Tammie
