So glad I finally got to meet your Mom just before Jack arrived...I see the strongest resemblance between her, Jack, and you, Richard. Enjoyed pictures in the video. Well done, and she was especially beautiful. John joins me in extending our deepest sympathy

We have all been blessed by having you so close in our lives, loving you and having been loved by you. You were truly special to us and we will miss you. We will always remember our special times together...holidays, birthdays, the birth of both our boys, and our special family times having meals together for big breakfast, lunches and dinners. We love you Granny and you will live on in our hearts and memories forever.

As one of her eldest nieces, I have fond memories of spending time with Aunt Chris and Uncle Kent in Atlanta during summer breaks. I especially cherish the moments when Aunt Chris and I would shop, have lunch at the Swan House, and spend time talking over coffee in her kitchen. She will be remembered with love.

Beloved Aunt and our own personal, special Southern Belle: you lived and completed your life on earth on your own terms. Determined, fun, focused, strong: we lost an impressive role model this week. Andy, Richard and families: you have our deepest sympathy. Your Mother and Father continue to watch over you and live forever in your hearts. They were so very proud of their three sons and grandchildren. Our love and prayers are with all of you during this time of sorrow. Kathy Taylor Smilan and Family
