Mama had a heart full of love, a smile that would brighten any room, and a SPIRIT that was like any other ! Her ability to laugh and find humor in the smallest things could brighten anyone's day. Her love for the outdoors and her plants was one reason we connected so well, and the rockers, the front porch rockers. This is a place where good conversation and lots of laughs could always be had. Of those, I will miss your welcoming smile the most. Getting to spend sometime with you on your birthday will always be my special memory. You be careful up there, and make sure they don't get it twisted, we are who we are ! I love ya mama, rest easy !
