More Memories of Mother


My mother, Barbara (“Baboo”) Cannon Weatherly McWaters, was buried this morning at Hillcrest Cemetery in Dandridge, Tennessee after a brief service and sharing of memories.    She was born and lived most of her adult life in Savannah, Georgia, and moved to Tennessee to be with her daughter Page Dawson and two grandsons Christopher and Patrick Thompson. She died holding my hand early the morning of December 31st.

You can read more about her life in her obituary notice.

Words cannot adequately describe such a loss, but for all those who knew her, here is a brief video montage of her life.  For family and all others, please feel free to leave a comment on this video at YouTube.

Thanks for your love and support.  Enjoy.
