Mama's Hands
Mama was a strong woman in many ways.
Her hands were never idle and she took time to pray.
Her hands and heart were devoted to her husband, church, her five kids, and family she loved so much.
She farmed and cooked-we can't begin to list all the things she did or all the lives she touched. 
She was preceded in death by her parents, Lee and Emma Hester; sisters, Irene Hester and Effie Cowart; brothers, Toy Hester and Roy Hester.
She is survived by her husband, E.W. Cochran of Free Home; daughters, Regina (Earl) Groover of Cumming, Rilla (Ronny) Price of Canton; sons, Ed (Becky) Cochran of Holbrook Campground, Coy (Brenda) Cochran of Free Home, Stanley (Rhonda) Cochran of Cumming; brothers, Grady (Inez) Hester of Kennesaw, Jack (Jackie) Hester of Cumming; sister, Ruby Milford of Macedonia; 11 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren;
