Your mom was the best person around, she always made you feel good about yourself, her laughter and her stories were addicting. Her brother John Thomas loved her to the moon and back, when he would call her she would always say don’t call me unless you want to talk. Lordly she could talk. When she got to heaven your dad and uncles were there waiting for her and asking her what took you so long.
God bless you, Irene Jenkins
