ADD A MEMORY
Karla Craig

November 25, 2020

My fondest memory of Mom was when I first had Jacqueline. Jacqueline was so small, I was so scared to give her a bath. Mom and Diane came over and gave Jacqueline her first bath. She stayed with me for a week and taught me how to take care of my newborn. I am forever grateful for all Mom did for my family.

Another great memory of Mom was when she danced with Elvis Presley.

Mom truly loved her family and all she ever wanted was for everyone to get along.

~I have a lot of favorite (good and funny) memories of whom we all called (Mom). They have always involved curse words.
~I remember sneaking her out the hospital so she could smoke.
~I also remember in 1996 Karla and I went and found Mom to get her back involved with the rest of the family.
~I remember in 2008 Karla and I made Mom come live with us. I loved having her around.
~I will miss her so much!!
~I will see you again one day.
