Those with a knack for growing things are said to have a green thumb. But some of those thumbs are even greener than the others. Mayme Caver’s could best be described as forest green as she could seemingly grow anything, and often did. Gardening was her favorite pastime, but her nurturing care was also greatly felt by both family and friends — and will be greatly missed, too.
Mayme Caver passed away July 25, 2016 in Austin, Texas, and with little doubt the gardens of Heaven are already more lush.
