    Its so hard when you loose the Matriarch of the family. For us at this time thats who she was. Mamaw, as she was commonly called holds great memories in my life. AS a child, I remember the times at her house, as an adult I remmber her working in the yard by her apartment, wondering how she is doing it at her age! Most off all I remember her hugs. Much love coming your way with prayers for the days coming. I wont be able to attend the funeral due to work schedule. But I will be there in Spirit.
    What a day that will be, When my Jesus I shall see!! can you imagine the reunion and celebration going on with all those davis's and brewsters.....and JESUS!

    I am so sorry for the loss of Mrs. Dorothy. She and my mother (Marie Nichols Rice) were life long friends. They would visit and talk about things that happened long ago. Mrs. Dorothy could tell some funny stories about how things really were back then. She had a good sense of humor and loved people. She will be missed by all who knew her.

    I went to see her a few weeks ago. Had a great visit with her and Anna. Her mind was sharp, probably sharper than mine. She was a hard worker like her brother. Their are so many things I remember about her and will always cherish. I am sad she is gone, but happy that she is at peace and with all her loved ones. Rest easy my sweet one until we meet again.

    Love you,
    Linda Kay
