From Courtney Janice Pickett:

Grandma, in memory of you I just want to share a few thoughts about how much you've
meant to me and some of the memories we've shared and some of the values you instilled in me.  My grandmother, for those who didn't know, held a very special place in my heart. She was someone I was very close to. Growing up I've learned of her love, and her huge capacity for loving many. All just as much but in different ways. 

For me one of my fondest memories was her always wanting to make sure I was fed, whether she made home made burgers or even on those times she picked me up
from work and school bringing me a chick-fil-a sandwich she always made sure I had something to eat to have the energy to keep going. 

She was also a very strong lady, always capable of handling any task and showing me how even as a young lady I was just as capable as any man. Even through hard times she would pull herself together and put her energy into making sure that everyone was taken care of, and I only pray that I can have her strength and heart to go into the world like she did. 

She was also very comforting.  Anytime I ever went to her with my problems and cry on her shoulder she would always give me some sort of advice and tell me "this too shall pass".  Of course I never felt like those hardships or problems would ever pass at the time but her words were comforting and brought me hope. 

My grandmother also was working with me on patience since many may know I'm not
a patient person, and would always remind me of how patience is a virtue and I would calmly remind her that it "wasn't my virtue". Over time however, I've grown more patient and learned to listen (if only just a little) more than I spoke. 

While she was all these things she was always full of life and spirit, kind of mischievous at times but still always filled with love.  She is part of the reason I am who I am today.  I must say she will be missed not just by me but the many she touched the hearts of around her. Yet I know she isn't really gone and here in the spirit with us all. 

She will forever be loved, forever be remembered as the wonderful grandmother, mom, wife, aunt, sister to all of her family and forever remain in our hearts. Always ❤❤❤❤

I remember Adrienne from AC.  She was always a hard worker, someone who would always get the job done!   More recently, I would see her when we went to Dallas for the annual church conferences there.  She was always at the reception table, and we always spent some time catching up.   We will be attending this July also, and it just won't be the same without Adrienne.
