"Mama" was my mother-in-law, we didn't always see eye-to-eye,in the beginning, but, grew to respect and love each other. She loved God, and her family very much. I have the deepest respect and love for this woman.

I loved to hear her sing. One of her fav.'s was "I'll Fly Away"- if, I close my eyes and listen, I can can hear her singing it.


("I'll Fly Away"

Some glad morning when this life is over,
I'll fly away.
To a home on God's celestial shore,
I'll fly away.

I'll fly away, O Glory,
I'll fly away.
When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye,
I'll fly away.

When the shadows of this life have flown,
I'll fly away.
Like a bird thrown, driven by the storm,
I'll fly away.

I'll fly away, O Glory,
I'll fly away.
When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye,
I'll fly away.

Just a few more weary days and then,
I'll fly away.
To a land where joy shall never end,
I'll fly away.

I'll fly away, O Glory,
I'll fly away.
When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye,
I'll fly away.



She shares a double stone with her husband, and is buried next to thier son, Dennis.

Rest in Peace, Mama. I love you.
