Lynnie, Lillie, Tommy and family,I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Mettie's passing away. She meant so much to our family and was a very special friend to mama. Our family was so blessed by her presence in it and we loved her very much. We will always have fond memories of the time we spent with her. May God continue to bless you all and I will definately keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you go through the next few weeks.

Love you & miss you. I will always remember my summer afternoons spent on your front porch & all the times you came in Daddy's restaurant. I can see you & Daddy & Pop Eddie drinking coffee in God's flower garden watching all the babies play. Fly high and kiss my babies for me.
