This beautiful lady simply radiated love. I will miss opening my mailbox to find her beautiful handwritten Christmas and birthday cards and an occasional beautiful handwritten letter. One of last most memorable letters she wrote of beautiful inspirational loving things, faith and the blessings her Lord and Savior has given to her, shared how fun she remembered it being to be a mother of young children but also added some humor to that as well as her decision she might not drive as much anymore because it was making others nervous when really she saw her driving as perfectly fine (at nearly 101!). Her beautiful smile and laughter I remember so well could literally be heard through the pages, and her quotes always were so much like my Mamaw Jo’s it would make me thrilled to read them over and over. I know she is singing praises and potentially having a good card game in Heaven with her siblings. By far she is one of the most beautiful, timeless, and ageless ladies God blessed me with. Welcome home Aunt Mimmie! You’re hard work for the King Kings and blessings you surrounded all of your family with will never be forgotten here on earth.
