Wicked sense of humor and love for the wee ones...and black strap molasses. As strange as the molasses sounds I will miss the distinct smell. Gran Helen will be a spitfire forever. She was a beautiful set up of opposite things. Such a sweet lady that I would never box, nor would any of the boys around. Eveylynn is both of these things as well as is Ashley and there is no better example of beautiful strength with a bite that could ever be. I am honored to have had her hold my babies and wrap them up in a burrito ,seemingly without moving. Like second nature, it was no challenge to her when I struggled to change a diaper without securing it with scotch tape and several sets of baby pants:) I remember the lullaby and seeing feminitity in all its glorious powers; being vulnerable but able to attack at any second if need be. I will miss you and treasure you're spunky being forever and for the funniest road rage I have ever seen and always knowing you were only half kidding.Love always, Jenny

My sweet Evelyn,
I can't tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I am so glad we spoke last week. I'm very thankful I got to meet your mother. She instantly warmed my heart.
God bless and keep you.
Love, Sue and Floyd
