Gma was always a shining light ever since I met her. When I became friends with her granddaughter Chelsea I also gained more family including her. You could always see how loving and proud she was of her family and others which is complementart of her nursing background. She always showed great strength through her ordeals. Knowing that her energy will always surround her and her family should bring comfort to all.
