    All my love….Mamaw was the sweetest…most kind…lady that I’ve ever known. I feel truly blessed to have had such a wonderful lady in my life…she taught me so much…I am who I am today…because Mamaw loved me…she made a huge impact on my life and for that I am forever grateful. So much sympathy for her sons as they have lost their mama…but what a mark she left on this world. So, so, so many lives touched by the sweet hand of Mrs. Elaine Holder
