Honey was a reflection of her name as sweet as Honey, a nickname given to her by her Grandson John. Honey took time to build exceptional relationships with every member of her family and there was NO DOUBT in any of her family members minds that we were each loved unconditionally. Honey holds a special place in our hearts, one that NO ONE can ever replace.
Honey was baptized into Christ as a small child in a tent Church by a traveling Preacher. Toward the end of her life Honey made the decision that she needed to be fully washed in the blood of Jesus and was baptized on Monday March 7, 2011 by Pastor Carl McLaughlin assisted by Pastor Larry Nunley with her loving family in attendance
Our Honey went home to be with the Lord on Friday March 11, 2011......till we see you again, you will live in our hearts. We Love you!!
