Well Livin' Hell

I want to thank you for praying for Tyler's Meme the past few days. She went to be with Jesus about 10:30 tonight. It has been a very difficult time for us. Meme is the woman who basically raised Tyler, especially after his mom got sick. He was her favorite. And she would've told you that. Everybody knows it.

There is no doubt in my mind that Heaven threw a party welcoming her in. Also, I guarantee she is telling Jesus dirty jokes. For real, y'all. The woman told jokes I wouldn't even repeat to my mama! I hope that she is up there having a dance party with Jesus, because that is absolutely what she would want!

We miss her so very much already. She was an amazing woman and I truly am blessed to have known her.

I can't thank you enough or tell you how much all of your comments/tweets/texts/emails have meant to us over the last few days. Tyler hasn't even complained when my phone went off because he knew more than likely it was another person telling us they were thinking about and praying for us. We truly have felt covered in prayer. It's a wonderful feeling.

PS Livin' Hell was "her phrase." Pretty sure its the first thing I ever heard her say and it was imprinted on her 80th birthday napkins. It means Meme to us.


  1. Oh, Niki, I feel y'alls pain. My grandfather died a couple years ago after he basically raised me and I was crushed. I'm praying for peace for both of you!

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. I'm so thankful she didn't have a long road of suffering and now is home with Jesus. Praying for you guys in the days ahead! (hugs)

  3. niki, i'm so, so sorry for your loss.
    praying for you and tyler during this hard time.
