Sharon, Thankyou for posting! I’m her daughter. I remember mom always thought of you throughout the years and always talked about the fun you 2 had together! We will be having graveside service for her October 22 around 10 that morning at Fairlawn cemetery, Chickasha. Feel free to let others know if they’d like to come
Momma oh how I miss you terribly! I know you’re no longer in pain and with daddy and everybody. Til we meet again I will always miss and love you! My first glass of tea every morning is in your honor. You spoiled me growing up with having a glass of tea on my nightstand waiting for me when I wake up. I’ve constantly miss that! Oh mommy how I miss and love you. Rest In Peace
