I will always remember "Grammy" for the love she had for her children and grandchildren. Any time there was a school event, she was right there, front and center happily cheering them on. What a blessing she was to her grandchildren! Landry and Taylor you were very fortunate to have such a wonderful woman in your lives. She will never leave your heart and you will pass on a part of her to your children. She will be forever with you.

I will never forget how kind Darla was to make my wedding cake. For a college girl with not a lot of money she made Bobby and I a cake beyond our expectations and delivered it and set it up over an hour away! I have never seen her without a smile and a kind word for those she was around. I wish I could have known her a lot longer and I am so proud to include her into my extended family!
