"If you look in the dictionary under grandmother and you should see her picture. I remember going to spend the night at her house as a little girl, and as I grew older our bond grew stronger. We would sit on the porch and talk for hours or she'd be in the house sitting in her recliner and I would sit on the couch and fall asleep and when I awake she would smile and say u ain't worth a s*'t. Some company u is." But she loved having me there and would always keep me updated on the rest of the family. I'm going to miss her dearly. I love you grandma! Heaven has gained a true angel."

"This lady was an awesome lady. I remember as a child I would spend the Sumner down south With her. We had no plumbing no well for water ( we use to have to go to the water supply to get big drums of water). But that never stop her from raising her family. She always seem happy and never rested until we all were in bed. I would be awaken by the smell of the best homemade biscuits ever. I really going to miss you grandma. Love you forever"
