Grandma, I love you so much! You were the best grandma anyone could have! You taught me how to have an imagination, how to laugh at ourselves, how to enjoy life even when things don't go our way! "Well you do what you have to do" ! You would say! This is hard but I will do what I have to do!! I will miss our time together! I love you! RIP Mam Maw!! Give everyone in heaven a hug! Good bye for now......u

Gary and I send you our love and prayers. We were so sorry to hear about her passing. I missed seeing the announcement when the funeral was so I apologize for not being there. I really wanted to. What a sweet lady she was. I'm sure Barbara was waiting at the gates to guide MaMa in..... They are probably drawing, painting and singing right now. Love you all, Julie Noland
