She may be gone but never forgotten. We will miss her peanut butter and jelly smandwiches and her gruff love. I will miss calling her a heifer among other things but mostly I will miss that she was always there when I needed her even when my husband would piss her off. You would of thought she should of hated the chief but whenever I was mad at him she would be the first to tell me how great I had it and what a great husband I truly had. She was my boys second mother and she knew how to keep them in line. Owe the conversations we would have about God and religion. But I know that as much as she says she did not believe I know God knows what a true gem she was and by God's grace I believe that he is letting her run wild with the wolves. I love you my dear friend and I will miss you. For the Kisner and Pittman family may God comfort you and hold you in this very difficult time.
