Mimmy is in Heaven

Mimmy passed away yesterday, and even though it is so hard letting her go, I know she is way better off. I just know her and Papa are so happy seeing each other again!We are heading to Texas today to be with all the family.

This was the most amazing women I have ever met. She would do anything for anyone and give the clothes off her back to a stranger. I have so many WONDERFUL memories with her that I will never forget! I can not believe that I am sitting here writing that she is gone.This is the HARDEST post I have ever wrote. I thought she would live forever. Growing up (and still do) I look up to her so much. She was a teacher for many many years, and when I would spend summers at her and Papa's house, I would get a poster board, chalk, paper, you name it and set my baby dolls up like they were my students in my class and teach them. I would say I want to be a teacher just like you! I am so thankful for the summers and days that I spent with them. She gave me the best childhood any child could have. I'm not going to lie, my Mimmy spoiled me. I will never forget our shopping trips to the mall, her taking me to softball camp, rubbing my back with baby powder until I went to sleep, letting me and my brother take turns driving down the driveway when we could barley see over the wheel, going to check on Papa and Bo when they were working on the farm, going to the beauty shop, going to church and letting me sleep on her lap while the preacher was speaking,going with her to meetings that she had with her friends or church group, going with her to take meals to her friends that were sick or had lost a loved one, working in the garden. I have a picture of me holding some carrots that we picked, and I am wearing her shower cap and one of her duster night gowns with the biggest smile ever on my face.Hughes Springs has lost one of the most well known, sweetest couple and she will be missed!I am so glad that I was able to talk to her before she passed. She laughed and sounded like the Mimmy that I remember. She talked to Steven Paul and that just made her day! The way her face would light up when she would see Steven Paul and Rheanne was Priceless.
I Love you Mimmy so much and it is going to be so hard without you, but I I know you are so much happier!I miss you so much already but I will see you again!

I also want to thank my grandpa for taking care of her this past year.It was one of the hardest jobs ever and he did such a great job. You are such an amazing man, and you got many gems added to your crown for what you have done!
