Why did you have to leave little old woman?  I told you just recently that you would out live me. You went too soon moma! It's going to be really hard not having you here. You were always there for me and Amanda when we needed to let go of our frustrations. You were there to listen to my problems I had with and about...well you know what I'm talking about. I have so many things to still tell you. I'm going to miss you laughing at us all like we were all crazy. I'm going to miss everything. Little old woman, you are going to be missed so very much by the ones who really love you and you know who those people are. Don't worry about Darla and Liz. Their strong women and they will be fine in time. I'll do my best to be there for them if they need me so don't you worry about anything, okay? Like Amanda said, if you see my little Guinevere give her a hug and kissy from me. Tell her that we will see her soon. She will keep you company until we all meet again. Get some rest and rest easy moma. I will miss you and I love you little old woman!

Hey Maw-Maw. I'm sorry that we (Moma, Darla, Elizabeth, and Me) didn't get that chance to take you to Graceland. I know how much you loved Elvis and had been wanting to go there for decades. That really gets to me, but I know you're up there with the King himself now. Can you do me a favor and rub Gwen for me?

It's hard waking up everyday and not being able to see you. You're  missed more than you ever could've imagined. You made such an impact on so many lives. I always thought I'd have more time to say everything that I wanted. Thank you for being my mom and everything you did. You will forever be missed and loved.
