|"Mother to all, stranger to none".|
"Momma I still feel like you never left me. Even in death , you protect me and look after me. I miss you. Sometimes you were the only person I could talk to. I miss our phone calls. Tell Daddy Hi ! I love you both so much. Until We meet Again. Love Loretta Anne."
"I will forever remember all of the things you taught me. I now know the smallest switches hurt the worse and faking sick for school was never gonna get past you. I watched you work hard every day at that Pickle factory, rise early and go to sleep late. I watched you take care of so many. I watched you be a STRONG woman who carried us all. We are all going to be ok because we had a great example in you. I only saw you cry maybe three times my whole life. I know we all gave you a lot of grief and heartache and stress. You handled it like a champ. You lost your husband and for 38 years you stood alone and you whethered any storm that came your way. You kept a roof over all our heads many times. Honestly I don't think there could ever be another one like you and that's ok. You were one of a kind and I know you are enjoying your just rewards in heaven. You were a good and faithful servant. Today marks three years that you have gone home. Feels like yesterday. You are always with us. All my love."
"Such a legacy you left behind. So many remember you today. Our rock."
"I sure miss you mamaw. I know you are celebrating your 91st birthday up in heaven and that you are healthy and happy with your loved ones and so that makes me feel better. Until we meet again. We will try our best to follow your lead. You were the strongest woman I ever met! Love always Mary Ann."
"It is your birthday. You would have been 90 today. I cant imagine the things you witnessed over the 89 years on this Earth. I am grateful to have known you. You were definitely our rock. None of us are strong like you were. You went on for 38 years after your husband died and you did it on your own. Along the way you took care of so many people. You remained faithful. I love you."
"I cant help thinking that seven days ago you woke up for the last morning. I am so grateful that you had your heavenly birth and that you are healthy and happy and whole. But im sure missin you. Love always."
"This little woman has been through so many things. I've saw many that cave at just one thing.I've saw her get mad, cry ,shout and cry some more.She always got through.She was there ready to pick us up. This time I know she got through one last time. It's beautiful for her. Forever hard on us. The village has scattered. She loved so deep."
"love you memawl you where and still are a great woman"
"Im not sure how we can make it without you. You were our rock. One things for certain this hurts so much because of the love you gave us, the life lessons you have taught us. I hear your voice echo all through your house i expect you at every turn. We miss you so much"
"I was leaving your house tonight when i went to your bedroom to tell you goodbye i realized i cant find you there anymore. That was a horrible gut punch. I am so thankful that i know you are in heaven with papaw, Tommy, Bobby, Amanda, your brothers and your precious little babies. I know you are happy healthy and whole in the presence of Jesus. You were the strongest woman i knew and"
"I am going to miss this woman so much. She was the strongest most loving woman I have ever met. Its just not going to be the same without her. Memal, I love you with all my heart. This is so true; "Mother to all, stranger to none". <3"
