The Flower Garden is my mom's safe haven. She loved being outdoors and loved every flower.

I miss you Mom, I planted a dogwood with some tulips and irises for you over the weekend. I'll be able to look at them and think happy thoughts of you. I'll miss our long talks about planting flowers and what we'll be cooking for dinner. The great finds at the junk store and laughing about what silly things we'd find. I love you mom You daughter Debbie Debbie Collis, March 3, 2017 Donna and Debbie, I am SO sorry for your loss. I'm praying that you are comforted and have peace. Mary Penn, Forney, TX, March 1, 2017 I'm missing you so much mom. I loved our morning visits at your house just drinking coffee together and talking about the flowers we had and the new ones we were thinking about getting. I love you so much.

My Mammaw , There will never be another like my Mammaw Bird, she was strong, spoke her mind, hated snakes and loved her family. To me there will never be an equal, I consider myself blessed to have had her in my life. The memories I have of Mammaw from the time she made me pick out my own switch for shooting out the street light with a pellet gun, to the times she would bake me special treats just for me , they will always be cherished and shared with anyone willing to listen. I'm gonna miss my Mammaw Bird. Brian, February 28, 2017 I'll keep good memories of you and remember all the fun times you've given me. I'll miss you Mom.. Love you Forever..... I'll carry you in my heart. Penny Brown, February 26, 2017 What a great mom. She loved us with all her heart. She was always there to Listen. She love the great outdoors. Always had a great big yard full of plants that she planted. She won awards for her hard work to make her yard a show place. She loved cooking and making things from scratch. Most of the time just measuring with her eyes. Always delicious. Love going hiking and vacations and camping. Mom will be missed. But I know I'll see Mom again in Heaven. Love you Mom, Bubba Billy Hatfield , February 26, 2017 We all miss you and love you Mamaw Teka.
