My deepest sympathies to the family. I can remember calling the house for Heather when we were in high school, and would end up talking to "mawmaw" for ten minutes before she would give Heather the phone. She had the best stories. Such a sweet lady. Please dont cut down the apple trees (remember the apple trees, Heather?)
