During one of my basketball games in high school mom did not like a call the ref had made and started yelling from the stands and I mean yelling!! He kept telling her to sit down and shut up and she would not listen(imagine that)!! So he then said ok well then I’m ejecting the whole team if u do not! So I looked up in the stands and said “ mom omg will u sit your butt down and shut up so we can play” lol ! I was never a fan of her attending my sports events after that!

I have a lot of memories here a a few we have gone so many places together broken bow,going canoing and yall were the only ones ever gone with us and not turn over and deep sea fishing,hot springs as a couple or group or family camping, want never forget the yr yall bought that pop up n we are all asleep in the middle of the night you hear this awful horrid of a scream I told tom go see if who ever screamed is airtight it was like a scream of terror n he came back telling me roy and donna bed broke on them they fell to the ground but that scream I think woke most everyone up y'all were at top hill and we were at bottom but always fun going fishing and crabbing or just playing cards and Tom and Roy always giving us a hard time and I hear you say slap him for me or you want me to slap him for you. While the men for some reason always wins most the time cuz they cheated in cards. I miss you so and I know you will be looking down on roy n Trista tanner and Austin n your grandbabies but I know it does not take away their pain. I know Tom and Grammy be waiting for you with open arms just give him one slap for me n a big hug. Til we see you again. I love you Donna Jean Davis Bailey and I want forget how you were there n comfort me when I lost my Tom.

Its going to be hard the next few months leading up to Christmas. Our favorite times watching all the new Christmas movies on hallmark channel. We would literally watch them all day and evening. This just doesn't seem real.

I have so many memories with my sister I don't even know where to begin. I used to spend the summers in Texas with her when I was younger and then my kids had the privilege of doing the same...our trip to California! The list is endless! I will continue to share my memories of her and I hope everyone does the same!
