  5. My kids and I knew her as Mimi from the first time we met. She had enough love to share with everyone she met and that is what she did. My favorite thing to do was sit under the carport and have coffee with her and Christy. If they were about to eat, we were too…she genuinely shared everything she had and with no regard or hesitation. Christy, my heart aches for you and your family. You made your mama proud and you exemplify the same character that she did. I love you beautiful friend!

  6. Patsy & I bonded at a family birthday party several years ago – turns out we were both very annoyed by something that another person had done at a previous holiday get-together. When Patsy got ready to leave, she pointed her finger at me and said, “Holler if you need back-up!” I now find myself saying the same thing to my friends and relatives when there’s trouble brewing. Thank you, Patsy, for your humor – we’ll never for get you! – Joy & Jack Hinton
