I remember her being a happy sweet lady. When Orlando and I got together, he told me that she cooked the best Butter Beans he'd ever eaten, well I wanted to cook for him one day and called her and explained to her what Orlando said and asked if she could tell me how to cook them, and she told me no problem. Well I still have her recipe.
She was ALWAYS a sweetheart and Orlando and I loved her very much. She will be missed by many!! Sandra Hargis
