She was such a nice lady. While I was keeping my grandson, her great grandson, she would come by to visit with us with her daughter, Norma. She loved her great grandchildren and loved playing with them. She also loved her grandchild, Christina who is my daughter-in-law. I was so blessed to get to know her and her love for those around her. She will be missed by all.
