Lisa and all who loved Momma June- I keep you in my prayers each and every day. Lisa, you were such a good daughter. You took care of your Momma and she knows that. Momma June is in heaven with Pappy and Mike. Now she knows and watches over her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. I am sure she would have loved to play a game (hours on end) of Uno with Brenden, Avery, Dylan and Hunter just like she did with Jeremy and Bailey.. She is free now of this horrible disease and at peace. Prayers and love to you.
