Cabo '08
What 82 year old do you know that can lay at the beach in Cabo
On Thursday at the Hospital she described her favorite dress she had...it was a blue sequin dress
She always loved the beach
Reading books to Mackey at Christmas
4 Generations of Elizabeth's
I love this picture of Mackey adoring GG
Widows Banquet 08'
Plato with Paxton Julia Elizabeth "Betty" Pigg
A beautiful lady has recently entered the kingdom of Heaven. Though I will miss GG/Grandma here on earth it is hard to mourn knowing that she lived her entire life to see Jesus. Once you have been in the presence of GG you saw a little piece of Jesus here on earth. She was the most giving, encouraging, and elegant lady I know. I love her so much and miss her but share in her JOY that I know she is experiencing in Heaven.
Things that I Think of When I think of GG:
1) Factory Connection- She always took us shopping there in Center
2) Who you go to when you break up from a boyfriend. She always knew what to say.
3) Chicken Spaghetti and Chocolate pies
4) Asking Paxton to draw her a picture for her refrigerator
5) Her speaking to the Aggie Sisters of Christ at A&M and imparting her wisdom on us
6) Her letters that came with "Julia" monogrammed in blue- she was a great letter writer
7) Washing our laundry when we were at camp Huawni
8) Going to the Lake Country Inn for lunch after church
9) Fridays taking GG. Mackey, and Paxton to McDonald's... GG was a sucker for a big greasy hamburger and fries. I guess I got my love of junk food from here.
10) Seeing all the journals and bibles that cluttered her ottoman...She seemed to have an infinite gift for being in the Word and found satisfaction in her Savior.
