How do you put into words what this Lady meant to me? I loved her so much and have so many precious memories. I remember when I went to stay with them when she lived in Valdasta Georgia and she took us to the Hoka swamp, what an experience, fort time seeing a gator. Going to bible school, it did not matter where you were at she made it fun. A Godly Zlady who lived what she preached. I will miss you so much but it's not goodby its I'll see you later.
