My Memories of Mamaw:
My memories of Mamaw are the many stays at their (Mamaw and Papaw’s) house. It meant I was able to spend extra time with them —and Kim would be there which was always a fun time! Breakfasts were always a big deal at their house —it was pretty much the only place I ever drank Orange Juice or ate Honeycomb Cereal! My very favorite thing she ever made was homemade applesauce and her famous Christmas cookies!
I’ll always remember her love for us kids and how she (and Papaw) would let us play outside and roll down their hill—no matter how dirty we got!
I also loved it when she (Mamaw) joined Facebook! It was the perfect way to stay connected with her and it meant a lot to me when she would leave us messages and comment on our photos. HOWEVER! There is no question, her prayers were the most important to me growing up and then as an adult —I will most certainly miss her prayers the most!
Greg and Aly will cherish memories of Christmases together with Mamaw and Papaw —Aly always thought it was cute and a little but funny when she (Mamaw) called her ‘Honey’, but it was very sweet when she (Mamaw) would ask her about school, piano lessons, etc. We all loved Mamaw very much —we’ll miss her terribly, but look forward to seeing her again someday! ❤️
