As kids Grandma would keep us for a week in the summer time and we would walk up to Clifton Baptist for VBS. It was always fun being with grandma and my cousins; Jennifer, Alichia, Gabby and my sister. One night after grandma went to sleep Gabby, Autumn and I snuck down to the kitchen and got oreos until recently I thought we got away with it.

So many memories with Grandma, even in her later years, we would sit on the porch holding hands, swinging and just talking. Or just watching people and their dogs walk down the street.

One day as we were leaving she walked us to the car. Looked at me and said "you're so pretty." Told her I got it from her. And she replied to mom autumn and I "you wouldn't be here if it wasn't for me" and it's true. Grandma left a wonderful legacy here on Earth

Until we meet again Grandma. Love you

Moving back here was hard, having Loretta and Grandpa made it a bit easier. She always welcomed you with a smile. My greatest memory of her was being able to spend most weekends with them and being able to hold her hand and just listen to her. Even as her disease progressed I just smiled with her and listened, some days she was all smiles and others she would cry. No matter what kind of day it was I loved sitting and holding her hand. I will always be thankful for the memories I had the opportunity to make with this sweet special woman. Fly high, I know you got your wings.

I was always grateful that she and my Dad found each other were able to share their lives together. They were a happy couple that deeply loved each other and made many wonderful memories.

One of my best memories was taking Loretta on this ride. Made both of our days and I think the most special ride I've taken on my Harley. I love you and you will be greatly missed. Rest in peace.
