    We love and miss you Mama. I know you are in Heaven with our Lord and celebrating every moment. As we celebrate your life and reflect on the loving caring woman, Mama, Mawmaw, Mawmaw “Grape” etc., I pray that you look down and are well pleased. I am so thankful that God blessed us with you. You will forever be in our hearts.
    Love Barb & John
