Growing up, my Dad, Robert Dickson (Bobby) drove us to visit Sikeston quite a few times. I loved seeing Lova and spending time in her home. She was very sweet to all of us and we have nothing but fond memories. I know a lot of people are missing her.

Aunt Lova was one of the funniest people you would ever meet. Her sense of humor and love for her family made her one of the best childhood memories I have.
