    Aunt Mae, as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. Ever gracious, kind, considerate, loving, accepting, forgiving. A smile that would light up a room and she was always smiling, no matter how heavy her heart may be. Aunt Mae was an avid scrapbooker even before it was popular. She always made me feel like I was so special. I loved her oatmeal cookies and I loved her. I will miss her greatly but, know I will see her again...probably out in Heaven's back yard picking up limbs and twigs. :-)

    Dear Sam, I'm Jay Clark's daughter and have just learned of your mom's passing. I met you in 2008 when we came by briefly so they could say their goodbyes. My dad loved your family like his own. They are all gone now. I pray to see them all one day.
