I remember being at Mamaw’s house every year on Christmas Eve. I remember the best biscuits and gravy you could ever imagine. Those biscuits would melt in your mouth and made from scratch. She always had a song for everything. It would be the funniest thing ever. I remember her giving us memories that will never be erased. She was always the care giver. She spent her life caring for others. It is what she did best. She loved everyone no matter who you were. She would help anyone that she could. But most of all she was the best Mamaw anybody could ever have. I have been blessed to have her for my Mamaw. I will love her and miss her forever.

I will always remember how she always had banana popsicles for her grandkids. And her coffee percolating on the stove always smelled so good. Her love for her family. Her birthday song. Her banana pudding and chocolate pies. Her smile and since of humor. I will miss her.
