  8. Her life taught me an interesting lesson. Everyone says when your fighting, you gotta duck, dip and dodge punches. I’ve had one black eye my entire life, special delivery from Aunt Pam(we was supposed to be SLAP boxing) left hook caught my right eye. I said,” aunt pammy you hit me”! She stated with uh giggle “you posed to dodge dip and duck not duck dip and dodge” also taught myself and a few cousins some pretty neat songs she sang as a kid. The my momma yo momma song! If you know it sing it! If not ask someone who does! It by far was her favorite! And I’ve taught it to my children against my wife’s better thoughts lol. But this way every generation will remember her heart spirit and mind and soul! One of the most unique people a person could meet or be related to! I love you aunt pammy and I will always cherish your memories!
