We will truly miss her! We know she is with the Lord and that brings comfort to us. She was such a fine woman who was always so kind and made one feel part of her family. We still hear her voice in our heads and hearts and we loved her so she will always be with us. Our prayers as always will be with the Jim and the family for this is a great loss but also rejoicing in knowing she is at peace with the Lord for He has her in His arms!
