A very special, beautiful, and Godly woman. Always a blessing and always more focused on giving and serving than on receiving. She will be missed on this earth but we know she is with her Lord and Savior in heaven.

Our prayers are with you…how wonderful for her to have finished her race…to have been met by Jesus at the gate along with a myriad of family members called before her…

Jesus said – ” Rejoice that I go to the Father, for that is a Greater thing”
John 14:28
Love you guys…
