    One of the last times I saw you, Diana, was when we were standing in Moma’s orchard. I saw a little flower growing by one of the trees. You told me the name of the flower. I remember that you reached down and pulled some grass away from it. Later in the year I visited your place and you were burning some garbage in the old barrel. You kept your garden by the end and side of your mobile home. And sometimes a tomato plant or two by the old Smoke House that Daddy built. I remember your clothesline. I give you this virtual gift of the watering can and the orange flowers. Orange is my favorite color. You will be missed and I will always remember the things you did for Moma. Many a day you walked up to her house to make her bed for her. All the shopping you did for her. And being there for her on the Farm after Willis died. While she was living she counted on you and Timmy and Christy in so many ways.
