She was the one who held us together. She truly loved everyone for her entire life. She loved the Beach and spent many family vacations there for over 25 years. She made the best of what she had. She kept her home lovely, sent two boys to college and supported all her children in every way she could. She was a very smart and intelligent woman. She was truly a Sweet Southern Lady who cared about her family above all, she touched our lives continually with all her love.
