Mom, I will miss you dearly!!! You was always there for me through the bad times and the good times! I will always remember the time you save me from getting a butt whooping from dad cause you would tell him evetything! I remember the time we would spend at the table playing cards!!! Who could forget the day you would drive me around to deliver papers so I didn’t have to walk or ride my bike! No matter how many mistakes I made in life you was always there to make it right! I have known for awhile that a mom has your best interest at heart 24 hrs a day 7 days a week! You never stopped being a mom even when I moved hundreds of miles away! I started a wonderful family in SC and you accepted them like your own. You have always been the rock that kept our family together no matter what life through at us. At least you will be with Dad, Pop’s and Meemee!!! I bet ya’ll are living it up right now!!! Rest easy Mom!!! I love you!!!
