So sorry to hear about thema my thoughts and prayers are with you all. She was a very sweet lady
I loved bringing the kids by her house and helping her with the yard. She was such a kind and gentle soul. I only had the pleasure of knowing this lady for two years, but when we had conversations she always finished every sentence with a smile. You will be missed.
