    A special thank you Great Aunt D.D. for all the love that you shared with your sister, my Grandmother Adeline. She always spoke so kindly of you and I’m sure was waiting for you at Heaven’s gate. I remember childhood sleepovers at your Mom’s, our beloved Grandma Thompson, who always loved to tell us about playing the piano for you kids for your parties at your home on Live Oak. Rest in peace and know that you are always in our hearts. With love, Jeff, Jeannie & Jadeyn and all of your nephew Joe’s side of the family. xo
