Effie was my
maternal grandmother. She helped me through a lot over the
years, she helped give me wisdom of the old fashioned ways about
everything from life to cooking to love. Family was
important to her. All she wanted was for the family to get
along and be happy with themselves and with one another. She
wanted the best for them. She was a great mother,
grandmother and great grandmother. When she was in good
health she loved planting and watering flowers, making quilts and
cooking. I had the privilege to live beside her most of my
life. At anytime that I was bored of being a teenager, I
would go visit and help her make quilts and do crafts and even
just sit and watch TV with her. No matter when you went over
she always said "if you want something to eat, you know where
it's at". She loved nothing more to watch the
price is right or wheel of fortune. She loved cats, for as
long as I can remember she always had a cat and most of the time
all the boys were named Tom. LOL
Mamaw, if your
reading this, I love you, I miss you and you will always be in my
heart. Please say Hi and give hugs to papaw, Jason, and
uncle Jr. for me. And if you happen to cross paths with
Cully do the same for him as well and tell them all I love them.
wrote this for her after she passed
So many paths taken
as she walked the circle of life. Every mistake learned
from, every joy captured in her mind. Her thoughts were
filled with family, she loved us all along, now god receives our
angel as he gently calls her home. I can hear her words, I
know she would say, "Continue the traditions, remember the
best of times, and always love your family because that love never
dies. I watched over you all in life, now I watch you from
above. Always remember your roots and where you came
from. My walk is now over, my circle is complete, my family
is my legacy left to finish my dreams."
