Mom was such a strong woman and carried herself with such poise. She had a laugh that was infectious and distinct. She embraced me as part of her family 35 years ago; I couldn’t have asked for a better woman to call my mother in law. I will truly miss her and her smile. Rest easy mom. Love you with all my heart ❤️
