She loved life, family, friends, her plants and food. Ask her to lunch, dinner or any gathering and she would say what time are you picking me up. Her wit and sense of humor had many with either a huge smile or in thunderous laughter. Her friends were sincerely cherished. Her love of and loyalty to her family is irreplaceable and will always be a blessing to the family. Her passing leaves a hole in our hearts that can never be filled. She will forever be loved and missed. Mom your family and friends all love you. Rest now, in peace.
