My heart is heavy over the loss of such an amazing lady. Til the very end she never lost her spunk or sense of humor. I have so many wonderful memories with her, especially our trip to the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC. The trees were beautiful, the company was priceless. She will be deeply missed. Sending lots of prayers your way. Love you all!!!
