"Ma" that is what I remember everyone calling her. I spent many days with Chris, Cookie, Haz and Doris in her home. Everyone was welcome. The world was blessed by her presence and her generosity. I know she will be sorely missed by all her loved ones.
My deepest condolences to the entire family. May you all find extreme comfort in memories of her.
