    Lindsey & Makenzie, you girls and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. She will always have a very special place in my heart. She treated Kody Wayne as if he were her own when he was there. It is an honor and privilege to have been able to have her in my sons life. I couldn't have asked for or wanted anything better than what we had with her. With sincere sympathy, love and hugs.

    Steve, Lindsey, Makenzie, I am so sorry for your loss Mistee was One of the most loving, caring, thoughtful person. She could brighten any room, any rainy day or anyone's life with her blue eyes , bright smile and little dimple in her chin. I remember I use to wink at her just to see her try to wink back, she couldn't wink with one eye always two and i would kid her about that. But she got even . When she was taking ty Kwan doe lessons she would come home after a lesson and wanna try what she had learned on me. One time she put two fingers on my shoulder and put me on my knees . She said these was pressure points and wanted to try more, I told her no thanks I was good and for a week I kept my eyes on her . I didn't wanna try anymore pressure points. She will be missed and remembered by all who had the honor to know her. If there was ever a angel on earth it was her! R.I.P Mistee Blue you will always be on my mind , in my heart and a part of my soul. I will always love you!

    Oh Mistee the stories I could tell. We had too many crazy fun memories. The most fun to me was the night we were supposed yo go to the Banquet. I kept telling you to hurry up we were going to be late. You laughed and told me to Hang on to my britches it would all be good. Then I said hey I see those ppl everyday at work lets just skip it. So we hung out at her house and laughed ourselves silly all night. I'm definitely going to miss you. Love ya Tee

    From listening to Micheal Jackson in the kitchen, watching Charlie Brown, qnd driving her crazy as kids, to her buying cheetos for Kaislee at the store or cookies when she saw us, she was always like a momma to me and I've always admired her for being a strong single mom! She will be missed and loved for forever!
