Scotty and Norman, I’m so very sorry for your loss of Sissy. I have nothing but fond and wonderful memories of her. I enjoyed many a meal of hers with you all. She was a great cook. Sissy was one of the sweetest and hardest working women I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The dedication she had for you two was immeasurable. I’m most thankful for the way she treated me and my children especially Mason. She treated us like family from day one. I know she will be missed beyond words. If there is anything you all need or that I can do during this time please let me know. You all have my deepest sympathy.
