Missy was unique.  She always had time and energy for friends and neighbors.  She quietly did good deeds for many and was always aware of the lonely and tired.  We had many laughs and good times.  I will miss her as will many in our Georgia mountains.  Prayers for Missy and her family, as she travels to paradise.
