My mawmaw. I know she had other grandchildren but to each of us that was exactly what she was. I looked forward to weekends just to go over there eat a bunch of good food and go to church. Honestly dreaded going shopping with her lol she could shop for hours. She was such a beautiful woman inside and out. I am so blessed to have the pleasure of her being my grandmother. I know she is where she is supposed to be and it gives me a sense of peace. Mawmaw you will forever be in my heart and your memories will forever carry on. I love you so much. Until I see you again my guardian angel.

I have so many memories of her, and being at their house, but the main thing I remember is when we would get there and she would be so excited to see us. I remember her voice clearly when she would yell “hey baby!” She was always so joyful. <3

My favorite place to go was always your house. I remembered being in the back seat and loved when we’d pull in your long driveway and id jump out of the car, pet the dogs and race up the stairs to see my mawmaw. She always was waiting with a smile and a big hug, and lots of kisses. She'd ask me a million times if I ate yet, and even if I did id eat again because no one can cook like mawmaw. I'll miss the mornings with you watching QVC and trading spaces. I'll miss the afternoons going shopping and to the hair salon, getting in the paddle boat on the lake even just sitting with you on the porch admiring the view. I'll miss the nights laying in bed with you telling me stories about dogs over and over again. I'll miss spending my summers there with you and pawpaw and aunt bridge. I'll miss the days me and Ariel going over to play. I miss all of the family get-togethers at your house and us kids playing hide and seek at night time in the yard. I think I'll miss the smalls things the most, like holding your hand, hearing your voice sing to me, your warm hugs, and your smile. My heart is content knowing you're with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and God the Father. I know one day, I’ll see you again. You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.

Sending all my love and prayers for my dear friend. We spent many nights together after closing the restaurant, I was Miss Pam a cook.. We have laughed together, cried, shared many stories about our lives, faith and families and attended church together. I remember the evening she hired me, her response was, "Praise God I got a new cook, a new friend and a new church all in one night" Sure miss those times. She was a special lady and friend. She was truly loved and will be greatly missed by my family. Our love and prayers are sent to her children and grandchildren. God bless you all.
