I was so sorry to hear of the loss of Minnie. I remember the stories my daddy (deceased) use to tell about his first cousins when they were children and young adults. God has blessed her with a long life, that leaves many memories for you to cherish. My deepest sympathy to the family. Tracy Paige Christian

Dear Family, Our deepest condolences on the loss of your mother, grandmother, and sibling. Aunt Minnie was an amazing soul. She was a peaceful, faithful, and beautiful woman. She always had a smile or something witty to share with me. I will never forget the time she invited Wyatt and me into her home to celebrate New Year's Eve (2009). We sat in her lovely home listening to stories about family. One of the last times we went out for lunch, I was driving an SUV and she just hopped right into the back seat, passing on my offer of hand up. She gave me a little smile and said to me "You didn't think I could move like that, did you?". We will miss her very much. Love to you all.
