From the time I was a baby to the time I was an adult, you have always been a significant part of my life. I will never forget the sleep overs, the cooking and shooting you through the window with my water gun. I was so afraid you would be furious with me, but you laughed and ran after me. Life was difficult for all of us after the flood, specially hard for you. I only regret not having the resources to take care of you myself. You were and will remain in our hearts for ever. Now you will sing with the angels and dance with the Lord. No more sadness only beautiful rainbows. Love you Maw Maw

How do I say goodbye to you? You have taught me so much. May you guide me from heaven, as you guided me on earth. I'm able to love so deeply because of you and Pawpaw, and Aunt Lyane. Tell them all hi for me. That I send them lots of love. Life will not be the same without you. I'm thankful that I have so many wonderful memories in my heart to keep me going. Until I see each of you again. Lots of love; Tammy Picou Pendarvis, and Peggy Raye Picou.
