We were so very sorry to hear of Aunt Mae's passing. The last time we visited her, we don't think she even knew who we were but she seemed very happy. It is always difficult to watch a loved one's health decline and that was certainly the case with her. She was such a strong, independent woman who was loved by so many. She will be missed by not only me, but my whole family. I wish we were able to come for the funeral but understand the restrictions right now. Love to you all!

We loved you Mae! Willie has so many good memories of you - like your strawberry cake. You made it for him after you told him where to pick the wild strawberries. You have always been a loving, caring lady. As a sister-in-law, you were always good to me (Nancy). We are happy that you are in God's arms now and reunited with Jon, your parents and other family members. We wish so much that we could be there in person to celebrate your life.
