Mrs. Looney was mine and my brother’s, Mike Ayers, babysitter years ago!! She was such a sweet lady! I remember her house being so warm and inviting even as a child. We lived just down the street from her. As I grew up, I would see Mrs. Looney every now and then. She never changed, the same precious lady would still remember me once I told her who I was. I will never forget just a couple of years ago I had taken my mom out to eat and we were on our way back home. We passed Mrs. Looney’s house and she was walking down the driveway to her mailbox. I turned around just so we could talk to her for a few minutes. She was so glad we did!
My prayers for her family. She was a precious lady!
