Ma, I know you will never read this, but I pray that this message finds you. There's not enough room for me to write everything I want to say. Hopefully, I let you know how much you meant to us while you were on this earth. I am not good with good-bye's . You knew that. Especially where you were concerned. We will certainly miss you and all of the fond memories..
Love, Jeff and family

Nootsie was my buddy and teacher in our younger days. She taught me to ride a bike, climb trees, look at the clouds and see all kinds of strange objects. We climbed the hills and dales, caught crawdads in the creeks, listened to the dry flies on those hot sultry days in Arkansas. Those were and are precious memories which I will keep in my heart forever.
We shall be together again.

We will all miss Nootsie's sweet smile, her soft voice and her gentle ways. Rest in peace, Aunt Nootsie. Love you.
