I loved Aunt Helen. I always felt accepted and loved in her presence. Her home-cooking was always welcome too--which I was very fortunate to have partaken many times. I never left hungry. She was really an awesome lady--and very pretty too--even at 100.

My mamaw was special lady. Her beauty was timeless, just like the hugs and kisses she would give me throughout my years. Always a classy lady, from demeanor to her attire. Always thought my mamaw was such a put together lady. Love you always mamaw, - Mally.
