Maw Maw you touched so many lives. You are so missed. We love you so much. I know you feel good now and are renewed in body, mind, and spirit. Say hello to Jesus for me ;) I love you with all my heart and will miss you dearly. I can still hear your voice in my memories and I hope it always stays that way. Save a hug for me when I get to heaven because I will run into your arms and can't wait to see them outstretched for me.
