I JUST WANTED TO SAY HOW MUCH I THOUGHT OF LUELLA. SHE WAS ALWAYS SWEET AND KIND TO ME. WHEN I WAS 11 YEARS OLD MY GRANDMA PASSED AWAY. IN 1991 MY PAP STARTED DATING LUELLA. I WAS 13 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME AND FROM THAT POINT SHE WAS A PART OF OUR FAMILY. MY PAP AND HER GOT ALONG GREAT. THEY WERE ALWAYS TOGETHER. ANYONE COULD SEE HOW HAPPY THEY WERE. MY PAP GOT SICK IN 1997 AND THRU IT ALL, SHE STUCK BY HIS SIDE. THE DAY MY PAP TOOK HIS LAST BREATH, LUELLA WAS THERE IN THE HOSPITAL ROOM WITH US. EVEN AFTER PAP PASSED AWAY IN 1998, LUELLA STILL CONTINUED TO BE PART OF OUR FAMILY. I WILL ALWAYS CHERISH THE MEMORIES OF THE TIMES WE SPENT TOGETHER AND I WILL NEVER FORGET HOLDING HER HAND AND WIPING AWAY HER LAST TEAR AS SHE TOOK HER LAST BREATH.

LUELLA, I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU FOR BEING GOOD TO MY PAP AND MAKING HIS LAST YEARS HAPPY. HE LOVED YOU. THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR FAMILY AND STAYING A PART OF IT EVEN AFTER PAP DIED. I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU! I MISS YOU! I LOVE YOU!

LOVE ALWAYS, BOBBIE JO
