This woman had such a gentle spirit. She loved these babies as she would say. No matter what when Kennedy was little we could sit her in the recliner with great grandma and bam she was calm. This woman had the biggest heart for her kids and grandkids. Hard to see her gone but definitely not forgotten.

Anyone who knew Memaw knew she loved her perm, and curls she had done every 6 weeks.
When her Great Great Grandson Jursea was born and his hair grew longer it started to curl in the same curls “Memaw” paid for every month.. Every time she seen him all she would ever say is “I just love them curls!”
One thing I will always remember and cherish is the unconditional love she shared with everyone no matter who they were! She will forever hold a special place in my heart!
