So sorry, Hal & Julie I didn't know.She was a sweet sweet lady and lived a long life.
When we lived next door to you in Mint Hill, I found out that your momma worked 3 doors down from me. She worked at Sealtest at Dalton Avenue and Graham st. and I worked at Fruehauf on Dalton Avenue selling truck tires out of the parts dept.
Again so sorry !

Mamaw, Oh how I miss you dearly. Kashton misses you. You were the absolute best grandmother in the world. Everyone who knew you would say how graceful you. There is a lot of broken hearts down here since you left. I hope you are dancing in the sky and watching us down here. Keep reminding me you are around by sending me signs.
