    Sissy was the most God fearing woman of faith I have ever been blessed to know. She always believed no matter how bad things were, God had a plan and was in control. She loved unconditionally and with her whole being. Her family was her world. I loved her like a sister. I am only made a little happy knowing she and Andy are busy catching up in Heaven. God bless you sweet friend til we meet again.
