She was a wise, strong and courageous woman who loved the Lord! She had a sweet gentle spirit and she loved us unconditionally!
She was God’s gift to us and was very precious and beautiful inside and out!
We thank our Heavenly Father that we were all so richly blessed to have her in our lives!
If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to Heaven, and bring you home again.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
