Aunt Mayme was the youngest of my dads family. She always opened her home for us when we were young and when we visited as older adults. She always loved to share stories about our family
and insisted we share church services with her. We did not live close so her cards and phone calls made us feel connected and loved. Mayme will be missed but not forgotten. Her love and
warmth will be with us always.
