A Sad Day

Sweet Mama's favorite cousin died yesterday. She was 83. Sweet Mama loved her as she was 10 years old than Sweet Mama and quite a "grown woman" when they were young. Sweet Mama remembers when her cousin was a newlywed and her new husband was the bomb! They were such a fun couple..always the life of the party! Just country farm people but the salt of the earth. We loved going to the farm to see the peanuts and cotton growing in the fields! There were always animals around...pigs, birds, cats, singing dogs(they learned "Jesus Loves Me"). Great fun for us kids!
It was also our hurricane evacuation destination! She thought it was so funny that I had taught my inside house cat how walk on a leash on outside! You should have seen the looks on the farm cats faces when I took him outside to potty. She was screaming with laughter and never let me forget it! That was in 1989...Hurricane Hugo!
Hubby died about 4 or 5 years ago and after a short decline, she died yesterday at 12:30 pm. We will miss her dearly, but remember her laughter and great food!
