Messages for the Family

    My Favorite Aunt, how truly special she was to us all. I was almost born on her birthday, so we never forgot to celebrate each other. Being the only girl to 7 brothers made her one tough cookie, and it prepared her well to be a Mom to 4 sons, whom she adored.
    She was full of knowledge and wisdom that can’t be learned, it was a gift. Undoubtedly the hardest working woman I have ever known.

    Always working with her hands, be it cooking, knitting, sewing, crocheting, canning, plus too many talents to name, all self taught.
    Raised as a sharecropper’s daughter, she was never wasteful and a true steward of GOD.
    Oh, how I love You Aunt Beulah Mae, until we meet again in all of Your Glory.
    To the Grandest Aunt of ’em all ❤️
