  1. One of the most caring and amazing people I had the pleasure of knowing, and a bonus that she was my great grandma. Thankful for everything she has done for our family. I remember going over to her house every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners and she always went out of her way to make sure we were having a great time. I remember introducing her to my fiance
    and her being so happy to meet her finally. The first time she met my son she just looked at me and told me good job while giving him a big ole hug.
    Love you and will miss you forever Mamaw Clara!
