I'm going to miss her sense of humor and how she would sit behind me in church and have our back and forth picking. She was so fun to be around

With such heavy hearts we are so sorry for your loss..She was my mothers ( Dixie ) best friend and I loved her so very much. Heaven most certainly gained another angel and she will be so missed. Please know you will all be in our continued thoughts and prayers.
