    Ms. Minnie, I imagine you enjoying many plates of shrimp and grits, you are socializing like nobodies business and you can see perfectly. I know you are another guardian for me and I think about you often. You have touched my life in ways you will never know. I hope your family can get through the pain of your loss. Love you and miss you!
