    My aunt Goldie was magic. She welcomed everyone. Loved everyone. There are few souls that are as non judgmental, as loving, as her's. She was silly, smart, fun loving and without question one the kindest people I've ever known. I love you aunt Goldie. You set a high bar for the rest of us. I will miss you forever.

    What sweet, sweet memories Goldie has left with us here on earth as she completed her journey on her way to heaven and that mansion on the hill top. I can just hear her playing the piano and singing praises to God. Goldie loved her family and especially her grandchildren, as well as her dear friends. Oh how we will miss Goldie, Mamaw, for she shared her love with us all. I love you, Cindy
