I met Jenine thru a Facebook group. I was asked to make her a craft called pocket letters . She was so thrilled each time she received one. It was my pleasure to make the craft for her. She was a good person. Only wished I could have met her in person The family is in my prayers.

My one and only sister...we both knew that we had our own special relationship. As memaw said "we were different as night and day". We might not talk for weeks but when we did, we never missed a beat. I was your "bug"...your little sister that sometimes wanted to be the big one when it came to you. I hope you knew that I only wanted the best for you. I will always love you, my Neen. Until we meet again....💙

I'm going to miss you more than words can describe. You were always there for me, especially when Matt passed. I'm glad he is there in heaven, to show you around, and to hold your hand. You touched my life in so many ways, made me start thinking outside the box. You helped me become the independent, self sufficient woman that I am on this day.
My favorite memory of you is when you blew a tire in the rain, you called the house looking for Matt to go rescue you, we weren't home, so my Dad came to the rescue. In lieu of your appreciation, you came by the house a few days later and brought my parents a beautiful flower arrangement, not knowing that my mom is severely allergic to star gazer lillies, but she kept that arrangement till it died because you brought it. She sneezed everyday, but giggled.
You had such an infectious laugh, and knew how to make others laugh, even if it was a bad time, you saw the good. You saw the good in everyone. Even the ones that were up to no good, you still had faith that they would turn it all around.
You took care of everyone, especially all of your youngins. It didn't matter how bad we messed up.
I will miss our late night messages, wishes that you will get better and we could go out, and most of all, that laugh.
I promise to always remind your grand babies on how awesome you were, how you were always willing to help someone, no matter the time of day, and how beautiful your smile and laugh was..
Rest in Peace Momma Bear.

Dammit mama. I wanna call you and ask what that song was that was playing on the radio while we were jamming in the truck. You sang the wrong lyrics to it and I corrected you but from then on we sang it your way cause we got a good laugh everytime but now I can't remember the real lyrics. All I know is it was an Aerosmith song. How I'd love to sing it with you now. But since I cant. Heres one last time for you.
🎵🎤"Let the rain come down"🎵🎶
I love you ma. More than you realized.
