For Clint and our loved ones, we rejoice that Aunt Ramona is with Jesus and her loved ones in heaven (which are also our loved ones). My memory of growing up in Tulsa often includes your mom and dad with you gathering for a meal and Aunt Ramona always providing pies from Bama - my favorite being cherry. She was certainly respected and loved at her workplace where she supervised other workers. She always had a lovely smile and I can still hear her laughter in my memories, especially when she was with Aunt Bonnie, though Daddy teased her all the time and got her to laughing a lot as well. She was very special to all of us and we will miss her.
Clinton- We sure loved working with your dear Mama in her years at Bama Pie. She worked circles around us younger ones and always kept us laughing! She was a great treasure. Grace and peace to you and your family.
