Dear God I didn't expect to be doing this again so soon!!! 3 people close to me lost, Roscoe Scott, Tony Luckey and My Aunt, Mary Elizabeth Lawrence "Lib" as She was affectionately known by most family, "Nan"by Her grandchildren. I Love not loved Her Love!!!!! She was like My 2nd
Mother!!!!!! She gave me books especially one of my favorites by Michelle Obama. She brought Me food from Kat's Patch Every Saturday. I gave Her food and gas money in return. I could tell Her health was failing. She could barely carry the food to the car without help. I would stand at My
window and watch to make sure She made it out of My driveway to the highway She had a Quirky sense of humor and Loved people!! She would help them any way She could down to giving them her Last dollar!! She would visit so
many of them along with her husband Dedee
when He was with Us. I can't shed any more tears right now. I miss Her to the moon and back!!!!! Love You My 2nd Mom. It is so hard to say but I must, Goodbye My Darling "Lib" !!!!!!
