Boonie and my momma was alot alike ( her sister Faye). There was never a dule moment around Boonie. She was a happy person and said what was on her mind. I loved going to her house when I was little. I always hung on every word. And there was always plenty lol. I will always remember her this way. Prayers for Carl, buck, Dallas, sissy and Bernie. No pain in heaven. No tears in heaven. I have lost a husband and a parent. Things will never be the same again. But always remember the love she had for each one of you. She will forever be in the hearts of all of us. I love you all.
