Mamaw had more than enough love to go around for all of her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

I got to meet mamaw the first time Terry ever took me to meet his Dad about 6 years ago. I met two of some of the most important people in my husbands life that day and I immediately knew why they were both so special as they quickly both became very important to me as well. I am so sad that mamaw is no longer with us and we can’t visit whenever we want to and will miss the comfort of just walking in her door to catch up. I absolutely loved hearing her tell stories of when Terry and Tommy were younger. I do find some comfort knowing she is with her husband again and her Donnie that she has missed so much. I am blessed to have gotten the chance to meet mamaw and become apart of her family.

Momma's Shoes
In 2002 the movie The Christmas Shoes was released. Every year including this year Momma and me watched it either together or talked the next day after watching it. She loved that movie so much. I finally found it and the sequel on dvd and got it for her. She insisted this year my sisters watch it too. Even when Missy only got to watch half(Momma fell asleep) Momma made her finish it.
After she passed we knew the dress she wanted(she told me the day I gave it to her that was the dress she would meet Jesus in) then we found the shoes! Brand new never worn she must have ordered them as the three of us had no idea about them. They are her Christmas Shoes! She met Jesus and now dances with our Dad in them!
I miss you so much Momma! I know you love us kids so much! Family first! Love you your baby Kimmy!
