Mammy had a quiet presence about her. She didn't really talk very much, unless you talked to her. She was sort of a mystery. I tried to get her to talk about her life and smile for photos, not always successfully. I remember going to her 90th birthday party. Quite a milestone! She never really liked a fuss, but the whole family wanted to celebrate her life.
In the last few years, Mammy's mind wasn't what is used to be. She eventually had trouble remembering people and places, which was very difficult.
She wanted to live in her house as long as possible and she loved having her dog(s) by her side. Mammy made the most delicious chocolate peanut butter and chocolate coconut eggs - every Easter. It's no secret that she loved sweets! A woman after my own heart. We will miss you Mammy, but we'll see you again one day. I'm glad I had the chance to know you.
