    I love you momma. I enjoyed going to yard sales with you, going to church with you, and listening to you tell us all about when we was little. You always loved Elvis. You always knew when he'd be on t.v. Because I'd delibertly try to skip that channel so I could watch cartoons. But you'd always know why I'd skip that channel. I know your happy to see Aunt Barbara and Tosha again. This is just an address change. I will see you again!
