Mrs Hereford, you have been and will always be a gift to me and to those who have had the blessing to know you. One very important lesson you taught me (amongst many!😊) is to always say good morning and acknowledge the people in my surroundings no matter how early it seems to me. You gave me the chance to learn and grow. I smile every morning with the thought that you are the catalyst to my early morning good manners!! ❤️

There were so many great memories and joyous times I had with Aunt Rosa Lee, the eldest of six children! My favorite memories were when Aunt Rosa Lee took me (as a child) to dancing school and her science class where she was a teacher; when she encouraged me to take an IQ test and helped me discover the score was higher than I thought and boost my self-esteem; gathering at her home with family for the holidays listening to her wisdom and banter while eating her home cooked meals; and when she recently accepted the Golden Deeds Award all in Killeen, TX! She deserved all the kind words spoken of her as they are so true! She is beloved so much and is missed greatly!

We were indeed saddened to hear that "Micki" has passed away. How well do we remember her when she brought greetings from Texas at our "Family Reunion" in Kingstree, SC, several years ago and invited us to have the next Family Reunion in Texas. As the song goes:
"When we all get to heaven;
what a day of rejoicing that will be."

Rest in Peace, Cuz

We share in your loss. Micki , as we affectionally called her, will
forever be with us. She was a true champion for the people.
Rest in in Peace, dear cousin.
