Mom,
You taught us how to love, how to put other people needs before ours and how to cook! Thansgiving was always so special because we knew your oyster dressing, yams and green bean caserole was on the menu. I only hope I can cook it the way you showed me this year for our dad.

To those who didn't know you, its so hard to put down in words how wonderful of a person you were and the incredible family you raised and left behind. If I can live my life with a fraction of your compassion, love and humbleness I will have suceeded. I love you with all my heart and soul and miss you so much. My life is now surrounded by your spirit and I will work so much harder to make you smile and be proud and keep our Lord as our love and life as you did.

Attached is my favorite pictue of you and your beautiful sister and brother who you loved so much.

Hey Mom I know you had to go but, this earth lost an incredible loving person and heaven gained a Saint. Tell Paw Paw, Poochie, and Randy Hi, and I know you must be rocking Tripp by now.

Mr. Charlie, Suzie, Mike, Duck, Kenny, Keith, Kyle, Heidi and Shawn,
I was saddened to hear about Ms. Barbara's passing. It made me think of all the good times we had together working at Economical together. The best was when she would bring her homemade bisquits in for breakfast or cook us a jambalaya for lunch. To this day, I haven't had better. My Dad's jambalaya was a close second.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all in this difficult time.

What a wonderful tribute you made to a beautiful lady who lived by God's words and shared His love with all those around her. May the spark that she ignited continue to live on in each of you and may your cherished memories keep her always close in heart. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
