    Heather and Heath, I’m so sorry for the loss of your sweet granny. I have loved hearing the stories of being raised at the farm with granny and pawpaw. I can see her waiting (with a smile on her face) for the “poker boys” to show up and play poker at her house. And goodness knows she will have all of them sticks picked up before they get there. One day you will see her again and talk about Friday night tacos. What a reunion that will be!! Keep those memories alive and sharing them is testimony to who Hugh and Neita are! They loved their grandkids! It’s a sad time for you both and pray you find comfort in each other and in all those great stories and memories made together with them. In deepest regard my friend. Take care.

    I just learned of Neita’s passing today. I am so sorry. Neita was always a very nice woman and I liked her very much. You were never a stranger at her house. She was always an honest and caring person. I always admired the way she fought for her family. May she rest in peace and God bless her familty.
