Cheryl, Steve & Spencer...We are so very sorry for your loss. What a sweet lady she was. She was a true blessing to all who knew her, and she knew a lot of people:) I always looked forward to seeing her and her warm smile and how her face lit up when she saw Spencer. We all know she is in a better place and free from any pain, but I know she will be dearly missed by all. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. With love, Randy & Susie
