Aunt Sissy was one my most favorite aunts. She was so fun to be around and would always bring a smile to my face. To me she was very wise, caring and a good listener. I really admired her. My thoughts and prayers go out to Guy, Brett, and Brock at the passing of their mother.

Dear Guy, Brett, and Brock,

I was very saddened to hear about the passing of your mother. I haven’t seen her since my dad passed away and I was very grateful for her making the trip to be with us on that sad day. I’ll always remember her smile, she always had one on her face. I believe she is in heaven now with my dad and all of the Wood family. God bless you all.

Kay Hawkins was a friend and mentor to me when I was a young woman. She was smart, funny, worldly, and open-minded and she always had time . . . mostly to listen but once or twice to chastise when sorely needed. Kay was fiercely but quietly protective of her boys, whom she adored. I will remember her fondly and extend my sincerest condolences to Guy, Brett, and Brock.

We share your sadness and your loss. SIS was very dear to Mary and I. I have many good memories of our younger years living in mdsv. and out on grave creek. she was my baby sister and we had good times together. when we lived in the east end, Dad always called her his “happy wanderer’ because we often did not know where she had wandered off to. but neighbors would look after her and often bring her home. sorry we were not able to come up. hope the flowers are okay. if any of you get an opportunity to come this way, we would be glad to see you. your mother was a good woman, and we can expect to meet her in heaven at the eastern gate to llve in freedom and joy forever.

god bless you all. in

Christ. HW
