I am so saddened of MawMaw's passing. I will miss her dearly. She was truly a Christian. She always had a smile and I never left church without a big "MawMaw" hug. May you rest in peace. My prayers are with all the family.

This wonderful lady was there the day I was born and has been a constant in my life for all 53 years. She was my grandmother's best friend and constant companion. I can remember 40+ people milling around her house for Thanksgiving dinners...the house was always full with family and friends who love her dearly. I do hope someone knows her potato salad recipe because it was the best ever made. We love you, Aunt Lipp!
