I am SO Sorry that I can not be with you today. Ya'll are in my prayers! I have SO many good memories of Aunt Norma Lou I do not know where to begin. I remember playing with her and the cats when I was probably not much older than 3 or 4. Her house was a happy place for me to be as a small child.
I am ever thankful for the way that she loved my Daddy. They shared a special bond! She and Granny made me laugh when they were together. I always liked listening to their stories about "when they were little." I am glad they they are in heaven together now. I am sure that they are giggling about something!

Dianne,

I am sorry to learn of your mother's passing. I did not know her but surely she was a wonderful mother to have raised such a loving, caring and totally devoted daughter as you. You gave her your best every day and because of that she was able to be with you longer that she otherwise might have been.

She is at peace now and no longer suffering. Let this comfort you now and in the months to come.

Hope to see you soon.

Dianne

So sorry about the loss of your mother. Lost my mother in 2003. I miss her everyday.
I have always remembered you and your son and how good you were to us when we moved back to Albany. You helped us through a trying time.
I remember you as a gentle man and that was what my father was.
I live in San Diego and have been here for 14 years. I am planning to move back somewhere between Macon and Albany within a year. I am asking God for His help in that.
I also remember when you took me to that church meeting and that is when I learned that God is in me. Thank you for that also.
I trust you are happy and you surely do deserve happiness and love.
Hope to get to talk with you some day.
Take care my friend.
