My mother was a beautiful person inside and out. When I was a child she reminded me of Loretta Lynn because she resembled her in so many ways. My father was a blessed man to have been with such a great lady! She loved him so very much, and all the family. She will be greatly missed. Rest in peace my sweet mommy!!

So sorry for your loss. I can still remember when Eugene was courting Thelma & they would sit under a tree in the yard across from my grandmother, Melda, holding hands. You could see the lovelight in her eyes even then for her special man.
