    I so loved Hattie as a little girl! We shopped at Spears and always went through her register. She was so sweet to me. I have thought of her regularly throughout my life wondering what became of her. My mother always let me get a carton of chocolate milk and I would drink it while we shopped. Hattie would always tease me about ringing up an empty milk carton. Really such a sweet childhood memory and I loved going to the store to see Hattie. Bless your family. My prayers are with you.

    We will definitely miss getting new stories about “Granny.” She was always a hoot when she was around.
