Aunt Doc was a second Momma to me. Her and her family lived close to us, and next to us. I grew up playing with my 1st cousins....and she always had time to talk or listen to a lil girl named Rita Faye. Arms wide open and a heart full of love. I always loved her so much....gonna miss her terribly....You are at Home now, with Momma and all the rest of the family...
