I will never forget life’s lessons I’ve learned from your example Momma. My heart is sad that you will not get to hold any more of my grandkids. Klara-Gail Emily Boehm told me just a few weeks ago that we needed to come see you. So she can tell you that she will “hold you in her heart forever “ (her words) I am glad you are now happy and free of this earth and with family that have gone before you! You are missed so much! All our love Sandra, Kenny, Kailyn, Kyle and Klara-Gail Boehm ❤️💐
