She was devoted to her family. Her kind heart, sense of humor and love of life will be missed by all who knew her.

I will miss “this sister” …so loving and caring for all her family.  I will miss the phone calls, the laughter, the long talks, and her craziness!  last phone call,   she told me she wouldn’t be  “here’ much longer…and then she began to sing  “if i make it thru September’   ….and we both laughed……and now I cry.
