    Loved my dear aunt, she was such a caring loving person to all. Will miss our chats about her family , especially the grandchildren and great grandchildren. It brought her so much happiness when they all got together. She was happy that Roger was doing his Christmas village because it reminded her of her loving husband. She really enjoyed the walks with Debra and David. She missed Keith so much and was happy that Kathy reached out to her. She gave me comfort when I needed it the most so I will always have special memories of her . I will always carry the special memory of her visit with me here in Tennessee, she spent time with my mom, dad and my granddaughter just visiting

    I will miss my dear aunt, she and I would have frequent chats. She told me how happy she was that the great grandchildren had came for a visit and she was looking forward to seeing Roger’s Christmas village. (It reminded her of uncle Will) and how she enjoyed going on walks with Debra and David. How thankful she was to Kathy for talking about Keith. She would tell me how well Tera was doing and what beautiful children she has. All happy thoughts and memories. We would laugh about the adventures of my dogs and each time she heard my John she would just say check on him he sounds like he’s having fun. Jackie came to my home in Tennessee right before my dad got sick and spent time with my parents and my granddaughter. That will always be a special memory. So dear one go to the heavens and join those who are there to love and great you home. Love always your niece Christie

    I will miss my dear aunt and our frequent chats. Our last conversation was about how excited she was to go see Roger’s Christmas village and the birthday of a great grandchild. She enjoyed walking with Debra and David and doing the gardening. She was so thankful to Kathy for talking about Keith. She would laugh when she would hear my husband going on about football and at my stories about my puppies. I will always have the special memory of her visit to me here in Tennessee , we had lunch with my mom and dad and my granddaughter. She loved being in Tennessee. She is now back in the arms of her loving husband son and family AT PEACE . Love always your niece Christie

    Please forgive me if this is a repeat had trouble posting. Loved having our chats and catching up with her. She was so proud of her family, a few days ago she was telling me how excited she was to see Roger’s Christmas village and her great granddaughters birthday. She enjoyed doing the gardening and walking with Debra and David. Her heart was broken with the loss of Keith but was happy that Kathy talked to her about his life. She missed uncle Will everyday and asked about my mom. She helped me through my terrible loss’s and I will always be greatful. She is now in the arms her loved ones. I will miss her but I KNOW SHE IS HAPPY
