Her smile could light up the darkest night and she could always think of something witty to say to brighten up your day. Her family was so lucky to have her for as long as they did... A wonderful lady that will be missed.

So very sorry for your loss. I did not know her or family except John Wilson and Stephanie. She must have truly been a blessing to those who knew and loved her. May God's grace and comfort be with you all.
