When we were teens she and I had some great conversations around school, parents, peer pressure, and boys. She was a great friend as well as my cousin. We lost touch after a while tho, I hate I did not know she was sick. I will always remember her smile and her infectious laugh, and the kind and caring person she was. Love and prayers to all Family and Friends.

She was a caring person. She loved her kids and grandkids. At least she is not suffering now.
