"Somewhere in Heaven, there is a beautiful red headed woman listening to Rocky Top and turning the sky and the clouds orange. Every time the clouds or the amazing sky is orange, that means this woman, Shelley Davis, is watching us. Remembering each and everyone of us. I love you and I will remember you. You're the greatest Aunt that I will ever have. May all of your pain be gone and your rest easy up in Heaven. We will all see you soon."  written by Autumn Sky Fowler

Rocky Top, you'll always be
Home sweet home to me
