  1. I’m not sure if what I previously wrote was recorded … perhaps a computer gliche. Again, to me, you were always my Aunt “Tu Tu.” You were the one who took me to “The Flame” for fried fish or “Podnuh’s” for a burger or fried chicken …. especially when I was tired of Grandma’s Chicken-n-Rice soup, for at that time, I hadn’t started in school yet, and you always delivered a treat! You were always special to me. Blake(my 17 yr old son) & I saw you about two years ago. I was told that you probably wouldn’t know me, yet when you saw me, you went to the hallwall and pointed to several pictures(photos of so many children) and of Bethany, my daughter … as she was then, a very young red-headed child. I KNOW that you knew who I was. You KNEW who I was! Please know that for all of us, you will never be forgotten, and like Grandma, I somehow see you handing out “Juicy Fruit” and “Orange Slices” in Heaven. We will all return again and be reunited … Love Rodney.

  2. Dear Jimmy & Mary Alice, Jackie & Danny, Brian & Jill, Kasey and Daniel and great-grandchildren, We are praying for you over here on the other side of the planet. Wish we were there to hug your necks. Aunt Tu-Tu’s contagious smile and laughter will always be how she is remembered by me. My life has been blessed and enriched by knowing her. May God comfort you and give your hearts rest during this time. Much love, Matthew, Lori, Hannah, Katelyn, Betsy and Daniel Burns
