Thank you Mom for your unconditional love and life's lessons. Thank you Mamaw for the pool, the sleepovers, your "special" salad and your famous fried chicken. We will forever cherish our memories and time with you. Praise the Lord O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy Name. Praise the Lord O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your sins, and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles. Psalm 103.
