Mother, Maw Maw, friend to all. None of these titles actually do justice in describing her, because truth is, she was a little piece of Heaven on Earth. Everyone who knew her, knew God, because she touched everyone in a Heavenly way. Her spirit was selfless and brave, and her legacy will remain in our hearts forever.
