Gary, Rick and I always loved her. She and granny would come and stay with us for extended times and she and the three of us were the 4 Musketeers.
I hadn't seen her for years and when I did it was if nothing had changed. That beautiful smile that lit up a room and the eyes that sparkled and danced.
God truly has called a very special angel home and the world has lost a rare and wonderful woman.
The three of us send you our heartfelt condolences on you loss.
