My point is... She Stood Strong

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

Her death is especially hard because this is my last aunt. My own parents, my uncles and now all my aunts have gone on. Aunt Maggie is the last of what was my Mammaw’s family.

It’s up to each of us to embrace her memory and follow the example of strength, love and caring that she showed. 

Hopefully, we were able to let her know how much she meant to us before she left this world.

You lived a long life, Aunt Maggie — a life that had more than its share of heartaches. But you always stood strong and dealt with each trial you faced, you never stopped trying, and despite the hardships, you managed to find joy in family and friends. 

Rest now and be at peace. We will truly miss you.
