It won't be the same without you.See you on the other side, rest in love my friend.
Every year I always looked forward to the Grimes family reunion and one of those reasons was Peanut. She was a kindred spirit. She always made ne laugh and feel good about being a member of the family. Gail and I will miss her contagious laughter, her quick wit, her funny stories, her humorous jokes and her sweet and loving nature. She will be missed by a multitude of family and friends. Rest in love and peace dear cousin. Till we meet again on the other side.
I love and miss you Aunt Betty . Losing you is as bad as losing my own mother all over again .. but I know your with mom and grandma and will be watching over us all just like you always have .. tell mom that I love and missher
We played together as children and we grew up together like sisters but I was Peanut’s aunt. What amazing life you can have when your from a big family.Peanut and I when on several adventures together. Including trail rides, floating the river, camping, 4 wheeler rides. We even went to my dad’s her grandpa home town in Georgia and visited family together. We could talk on the phone for hours. She would tell me how much she loved her family. Peanut, you will forever and always be remembered by me and you will always have a special place in my heart. I love you, Sallie
We are so sorry for your loss. Prayers.
I remember all you kids calling your momma Peanut from time to time. I know there aren’t enough words to say about all the adventures you had together. I was at your house once and visited with her about all you kids. She was so full of love for you, sometimes tough but mostly laughter and dreams of how you would all turn out fine. She was full of courage and hard work. You have made her proud. I love each of you and will be praying for your peace. Mrs S
We are very sorry for your loss. Prayers for your family. Larry & Jody Bane
