I will always remember mom's laugh and quick wit. I will remember her love of my dad, her brothers, brothers-in-law, sisters, and family. She had a quiet determination wrapped in a laugh and a belief in God.

She will be missed.

I remember, as a child, I would spend many weekends and weekdays during the summer with Mandy Price. Linda, her mom would always make me Spaghetti after church on Sunday, as she knew it was my favorite. Then, she would make jokes about how much I ate because it was so good. She will always be special to me and she will forever be remembered.

I am sending my love and prayers for the entire family during this difficult time. I know that there is great comfort and peace in knowing she is with our heavenly father.
