Mom, you were so many things to me..... mother, counselor, advisor, and friend. The last few years you have also been my safe harbor in the midst of a storm. Even when you didn't feel well, you always made sure that I felt safe, loved, and protected. Through the years we often fought the battles life threw at us together.

Aunt Ruby I will never forget the times we spent together in Ohio and Kentucky when I was growing up. I will never forget when you taught me how to write my name up at Grandma's house and then I went home that evening and wrote my name on the living room wall with a fingernail file, still dont think mom ever got over that one. I will never forget getting to come vist you and Uncle Millis and getting

I'll never forget how much you've taught me Mamaw, I'll always rmember the mornings before I'd leave for school and how we'd sit at the kitchen table and talk about the bible. I'll always remember how you always stuck up for me when everyone tried to knock me down. I want to be a woman like you Mamaw. That is my life's goal.
