She was such a wonderful, funny, loving woman❤️ We were so grateful to have her apart of our lives. Especially my grandmothers (Joyce Knight) and my daughter Noelle. Our hearts our heavy as we have lost someone who made such a huge impact on our lives but we are thankful that she can finally be at peace. I know she’s looking over us probably making silly jokes and eating all the food she could ever wish for. We send our condolences and your family is in our prayers.
