Aunt Nona and Uncle Leonard lived near us when they were young marrieds at Highlandville, I never called them Aunt or Uncle as she was only a few years older than me. She visited with Mom, her sister Mae, nearly every day. And then, Kenny was born. A sweet cute little boy! After they moved and the years passed; their family grew and I married so seeing each other seemed to happen with family reunions or funerals. With large families, this happens, especially with the Cooks! Aunt Nona had that beautiful smile, personality and original way of making a lasting impression on everyone. She will be remembered for those big hugs and the love she gave to all of us. Your loving Niece, Martha Joye.

Sincere condolences in the loss of your mother. You made her life a happy one by making it possible for her to remain in her own home all these years. Your family will be in our prayers as you say your temporary goodbyes to her.
