My heart breaks for her family. Thoughts and prayers are with you all during this most difficult time. She touched so many people both young and old. She gave all she had with no expectation of anything in return. Always had a smile, even if she wasn't feeling her best, you never knew. There are not words to express what a caring, loving, and giving person she was. Her faith in the Lord was so strong, I hope you can find some peace in knowing she is finally home.
