I'm so happy that Aunt Fannie was in my life, even though we were miles away she always was a constant matriarch of our family. As a young child and teen I can remember visits back there and how she had vibrant and strong personality (probably why she always stuck with me in my thoughts) even though when my boys where little and she hasn't gotten to meet them she showed her love for her great-great nephew and me by making us matching crocheted afghans. Crocheting was something her and I could share miles away, even though she was a master of it. I sure hope that the light up hooked helped as she told me it was getting hard to see. Aunt Fannie watch over those that are left here bestow a little of your storng will and love on them so the days may be easier. Thank you for always being a phone call away for my mom, you keep her feeling close to home being out here in California. Love you and will miss you greatly Jeni

Dear Mom, my heart is sad now that you are no longer on this earth. I will miss you for the rest of my days. I hope and pray that you are in a place of peace. I know over the last year life was very hard for you. It was my honer to help take care of you. I did my best. Please give Dad, Billy, Elaine and Gary a hug for me. I miss you all very much. Please watch over Ronny, Bev, Pat and myself. We will need it. I Love you Mom. Thank You, Bryan.

To my Ray Family: I have so many awesome memories of Grandma Fannie that I just do not know where to even start. Thank you for keeping me a part of your family. She will definitely be missed by all but she will most definitely never be forgotten. I hope she is at peace and having a grand ole time with Bill, Billy, Gary, Elaine, her mama and daddy. RIP Gran, you will forever be in my heart. Love to you all. Debbie W.
