Tootsie will always hold a special place in my heart as the spunky, funny, and loving lady that she was. She held on for 96 incredible years with her clarity and ability to recall fond memories of her family and so many of her life’s adventures. Although she was my husband, Mason’s Aunt, I have known her since I was sixteen, and have loved her as if my own. Tootsie, as we lovingly called her will be greatly missed.

My Mother was my rock, and her love for me was unconditional. The love she left me with has filled my heart.

I was blessed to have met "Memaw", this classic beautiful lady, (I always told her looked like a movie star from days gone by) when my daughter married her grandson, Abe...I loved her so much and will never forget the visits we shared...I will truly miss her!
