She was such a special lady. She and her siblings were more like ours too than cousins. There are so many good memories. She taught me how to pier fish,which she loved. Jimmy has been such an awesome husband taking care of her, along with her awesome mama and family also the workers. She will truly be missed and was loved dearly.
