Memaw- such an Inspiration to everyone who knew her. When we lived there, she was my "running buddy" going shopping, out to eat, or just sitting for hours and talking. She loved the Lord first and utmost in her life. So many great memories of her. Mine and Genes love and Prayers to all the Family. We love and miss you all very much!
