  1. CandleImageMom you were an amazing person and such a supportive and loving parent. There has never been a week go by in my adult life that I haven’t had some type of communication with you, despite moving out of the Atlanta right after marrying Randy Smith. No matter what decisions I made in life you have always been my best friend through every situation. Moving back to Atlanta was just a natural decision. It allowed you to build such a beautiful relationship with Randy, and what a beautiful relationship you both were blessed with. We both feel honored to have many beautiful years together before Alzheimer’s disease began slowly taking you from us. I will never regret moving back to Atlanta to be close by in case you needed us. Every rock in the road we conquered together and I wouldn’t trade these past years for anything in the world. Caring for you was an honor that I will always treasure. Thank you for being such an amazing mom. I will love you always. Your daughter, Melanie

    • CandleImageThank I will miss seeing photos of your mom…her smile was pure sunshine. I remember going shopping with her, and having so much fun.
      Every time I see a hummingbird I think of her. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.
      My prayers, thoughts, and love are with you all.
