    My mom was a beautiful soul, she was kind and sweet, she had a huge heart always saw the good in people. She was a fighter until the very end she was my hero in many ways, because when I wanted to give up she was always there to remind me I could do anything I put my mind to. Her father Charles passed before I was born and we did have an older sister Carla Sue. my mother loved all of her kids and she adored her grandkids. Mom I miss you sooo so much! I know your in heaven watching over us! This thanksgiving is gonna be so hard knowing I cant call you, 🙁 Do they take calls in heaven? I so wish they did> I love and miss you very much Mom.

    This is the photo we did the 2 of us at Glamour Shots here in San Antonio , Texas which Carla loved so much she even named a cat Texas when she moved to Tenn. Carla my best friend since birth growing up .I couldn’t say Carla-Lita when momma was calling her so I would repeat Carlaca . Daddy named her Sissy so sometimes I would call her that , too . We picked this picture out as our favorite together .Then being my big sister that you are always helping me and asking me to do things said this is my obituary picture make sure it happens and me not even thinking this could happen .Times change and this is how obits are done now days. Daddy would of raised hell about the last name being spelled wrong , you know . This Little girl now grown named after him sorta did me a favor keeping my word to you to make these corrections with a picture I have to make it happen. This is it . I wish I could do more , have more time , done more with you . Words can not express the love I have for you , loss , and sadness knowing there will be no more. I am so thankful I have so many wonderful memories and took the time to make them together wish there were more . Touch Gods Face , Sit On Our Fathers Lap , Rest In Peace until we are together again . This is your favorite sister to my favorite sister with love always and forever Kathy

    It saddens me so to know such a beautiful, loving, and carrying person has left this world! My heart aches for your family and friends. Many many years ago when I met you I thought how lucky Kathy was to have you as a sister! I loved you from hello as I did Kathy! Y’all were always there for each other….we might not have spoken or seen each other but you’ve always held a place in my heart! Dance with the Angels my dear friend! One day we will all be together again!!!!!

    Rest In Peace beautiful lady! You gave me life and had the thoughtfulness and love in your heart to give me up for someone else who could provide me with wonderful life and childhood. I was placed with two beautiful loving people that loved and guided me and provided for me what a child needs and deserves (because you could not at the time of my birth). My hope is that you knew that you did the right thing. You gave me the most generous gift of life and I know that you loved me because your thoughts were for what would be best for me and for my life and future before your own. I will never forget you and what YOU did for me. I only wish I could have told you …(Thank You) one more time in person before you left this world. Dance with the Angels my dear Carla…(my life first) Mom. I am honored to have known you, and I am so very greatful to have been a part of your life and that you were a part of mine.
