Julie & family You are all in my prayers and have always been there. Julie your friendship is a great big blessing God gave me when we were just little kids. I always loved being in your home probably because it was a little quieter and you loved being at my house because of all the noise and activity. Perfect fit. I have wonderful memories of your Mom and Dad. I always felt like family with them. Your Mom treated me like I was family even when she wouldn't let me sit on the piano bench waiting for you to finish practicing. I knew she always meant what she said and no asking again. But then she smiled when I came back through the door. I will always cherish the memories of vanilla bean ice cream, frozen peaches, and the pickles your mom kept in the house just for me. I will always love you and your family. love ya, donna kay Donna Kay Elliott, September 25, 2008 Mary Lynn was the life of the party at weddings and family gatherings.
