I will always remember my aunt as a woman bigger than life...Her smile and laugh had a way of lighting up every room she entered...! She lived a full and interesting life and the world will be a little less colorful without her...

Sister, I always called on you to pray for me when things were tough because I felt you were closer to God and could get through better than me. Now you have left this world and I know you are really closer to God. I will miss you terribly but you will be still hearing from me when I could use a word on my behalf. Love Ya

You were a great lady and I can hear your laughter in my head now! Your love of life was infectious. So glad I had the pleasure of knowing you if only for a short time. Say hi to my Dad, he loved you too!
