Debbie, Sherry and family So Sorry for your loss. Your mama was a precious Lady and always talking about the Lord. Love you guys. 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Grandma you were and still are the greatest woman I have ever known. I know everyone that you’re up in Heaven with is laughing like crazy bc you are the funniest, craziest person I know (in a good way). The kids and I will miss you forever, but I know you feel so much better than you did down here on Earth. You’re not sick or worried or anything anymore and that’s the more than we could ask for. I love you so so much and it’ll be hard to get through life without you but we will see you again one day. I love you so so much..
