Message from Theresa Davis Taylor

I think it’s just now hitting me that ur gone. My granny. That I loved so much. When I think about my childhood and all the memories I have from being there with u and grandpa and stayin summers with y’all and all my cousins I took for granted a lot of things I shouldn’t have. That u would always b here. That I would have plenty of time to come and see u or visit something I looked forward to everytime I came. Rounding that corner and first seeing old Katie’s place and knowing granny and grandpa were right around the bend. Thinking all the times we got kicked outside to play all day y y’all watched stories in the 3 channels we got was punishment but now realizing that it was the greatest part of my life. I would give anything to b playing n the chicken pens, or n grandpas old cars and boats that we weren’t allowed to b n just one more time. I can’t imagine not having the memories I have and it was all bcuz of u. When my own dad wouldn’t do it u hunted my mom down and made sure that the missing piece of ur family, ur second grandchild was back with her family where she belonged. And it changed my life forever. I didn’t always show it like I should have but I love u more than u no and I always will. I know u r at peace with grandpa now where u longed to b since September 14, 2016, but I’m gonna miss U terribly. I won’t even b able to come back to Vian without thinking about how excited I used to feel when I seen that big water tower and knew I was almost there.
Goodbye for nw granny enjoy paradise with grandpa I always cherish u both see u again one day............

Love ur granddaughter
Theresa Anne
