The Earth is a little dimmer without her smiling presence but the Heavens are so much brighter. I will always miss her infectious laughter and the way she made you feel like family. Although we are miles apart, you are always in our hearts and prayers. I am so sorry for your loss but feel so blessed to have known her and her family. If you need anything at all, we're here for you.

Bruce, Sheila, Britany & Chad,,,,,,,so sorry for your loss. Your mother, grandmother was a sweet soul and loved all of you so very much. This loss is hard to bear. Having been there I pray for you and yours. Nothing will ever fill that void, but God never promised eternity on earth. She is with her maker and hope you have peace in your heart.
