Well Maw, It took me awhile to get to it, but it has been very hard knowing that you are really gone. We have shared so much over the years. Many. many laughs and so many tears that neither of us would care to remember. I loved you so much and I know that you have always loved me. I gave you all the pictures for your album on us and I am sorry I didn't get it back before you went away. I know you are with the Lord and all the boys and wouldn't come back if you could, but I want you to know that I miss you so much and will always love you and I will never forget your sweet nature and your smile. I have some great memories of us and that will last until we meet again. Maybe you will be waiting when I get there. If not, I'll be looking you up.Love you, Brenda Lee.
