Ashley and Jason: So sorry to hear of your momma passing. Just remember the good time. Her and your dad was 2 of the nicest people I every had the pleasure of knowing. Now they are back together hand in hand, strolling on the streets of gold. Prayers for you and your families!
Becky was one of a kind. She and I were neighbors for many years when she and Mack lived in Jonesborough. There was never a dull moment in their presence. They were always laughing and having fun. Many good memories!! Also, she had the best taste in clothing and the outfits she wore were always beautifully coordinated. She always looked so well dressed. Sorry she had to deal with Alzheimer's. Her love and laughter will be missed. My sympathy to you in her passing.
