  3. Pam and family, so sorry to hear of the loss of (granny) as we called her. Many memories come to mind as we reflect back on the short time we knew her. We can still hear her saying get on in here before you freeze to death (winter) or get on in here before you burn up (summer). When we visited the family she always greeted us in this manner. She did not care if your feet were dirty she would say get on in here. We still miss seeing her out in the yard getting clothes from the line, or just sitting on the back porch with her white hair glistening in the sun. She was always dressed so neat and not a hair out of place. She carried herself with pride. Granny is in Heaven now and we are very sure she would not come back to this earth for all the money here. She suffers no more and is smiling in all her glory.Pam your family came into our hearts and left an impression that will never be forgotten. We still miss you being down here. Love and prayers to all the family. May God hold you in the palms of his hands and carry you through another trying time.

  4. Much love and prayers to all my Aunts, Uncles and Cousins. May your memories give you comfort and peace. I wish we had been a closer family.

  5. To all of you…I’m so sorry to hear about ‘Granny’s’ passing. She was the sweetest thing and so pretty! Pam, I remember way back when you lived on Sardis road and I would come home with you. She always made me feel welcome even though we were at ‘that’ age. Then again when I used to fix her hair. So sweet. She’ll never be forgotten by anyone that ever knew her. Such fond memories. May God bless you all and help you thru this trying time. Love to all of you.
