My deepest condolences to the family.
I'll always remember how kind she was to me
and my daughter, Becky. I'm glad Adrienne was
able to meet her mom's Aunt Toodie.
Aunt Toodie holds a special place in my heart.

Thinking of the family she left behind, I know they will miss her. Especially thinking of Brandi, I know she was a mother to you.

I will always remember you and keep a special place for you in my heart. You were more like a mother to me than a grandmother. I miss you so bad already. I have never felt more hurt or lost than I do now without you. You were the foundation that held the family together, but I know you are better off now, and you get to see Papaw again, and your babies. I am glad you aren't suffering any more, but it doesn't make it any easier to say good bye to you. I know time will help ease the pain, but getting to that point is the hard part. You showed me love like no other. You always treated me so good and "spoiled" me as everyone else called it. I remember you telling me over and over when I was little that I was the reason you lived, and I was your pride and joy. I remember when I was about 4 and I begged you to adopt me and dad told me to get the papers and he would sign them, so I got the newspaper and brought it to him and you all laughed and I remember being so embarrassed. I will always remember the times we shared. You, me and papaw sitting at the picnic tables eating lunch and our long shopping trips. You will be missed by all who knew you. I am glad you knew us all up til the end, and we got to spend time with you. I am glad I got to hold your hand and tell you how much I love you and how much you meant to me. I will always remember your last words to me were I love you too. Thank you for all you did for me. I'm glad you made the choice to give your life to God before it was too late, and that will help to comfort me in times when it seems unbearable. I will always love you and remember you.
