I lost my mammaw in October of 2012 due to a horrible car accident. She was sitting in an large open driveway waiting on someone so they could go to work at the Dairy Bar where she worked, (she was in her mid 70's and still loved to work) so she was waiting on a lady who was working with her that night. While she was sitting there the guy who was driving (diabetic) blacked out and his foot got stuck on the gas and he ended up hitting her doing around 90 MPH. Needless to say it through her car in the air and it turned over about 3 times, she wasn't wearing her seat belt at the moment so it through her all over the place inside broke her back and neck in 3 places paralyzed her from neck down and multiple injuries. She live 8 weeks in UK hospital. She finally got to tired to keep fighting and had a blood clot bust and there was no way they could fix it. She was more than ready to go. We miss her so much and I still have nightmares about it. I can remember her and my pappaw baby sitting me when I was little. I loved going to their house which was next door to us. She and I use to sit on the porch swing and sing all the time. To me she had the voice of an Angel. She was a huge staple in not only our family and in church but the whole community. People loved her and would go to the dairy bar just cause of her cooking. She was one special lady and is greatly missed by so many. I know she's in Heaven now with my pappaw singing in the choir. Can't wait to be with her someday.
