So sorry for the loss of Mary(Mama Hillbilly). She was a wonderful lady and I enjoyed every moment I spent with her. God has receiver a blessed angel. Prayers for all. I remember our trip to Paris, Texas, it was a blast. We went to the movies and laughed so hard we had to go to the bathroom. I'll miss you.
