Words spoken at her service by her youngest daughter.
How will I remember mama? As a woman of quiet dignity, a woman with great strength of character. She was loving, patient, accepting of others and sometimes a little stubborn. She had a great sense of humor. Whenever we did anything for her she would ask, "How much do I owe you?" Of course we would always say, "A million dollars!"
When she was growing up they didn't have radio or TV. And up until the time her hearing began to fail, she would watch the news on TV everyday. And then she would call her friends and would often tell them what she had seen on the news. She also liked to read the newspaper. And would tell us what she had read.
Several years ago I watched a re-run of the Dukes of Hazard with her. We both laughed until we cried. She really liked those silly car chases they have on those shows. She liked the news, the weather and soap operas. She really liked TV! And she liked to listen to Fred Switzer's program. She'd listen to Fred while she had her breakfast. He always remembered her on her birthday. Thank you Mr. Switzer for being so good to her.
I truly believe she loved her husband completely for her entire life. She missed him everyday after his death. She loved her children. And mourned deeply when three of them died before she did.
She dearly loved her grandchildren,her great grandchildren,
her great great grand children and her great great great grand child.
I'm sure she would want you all to know - that each and every one of you was so very precious to her.
She will be missed but not forgotten.
