I have enjoyed every minute with Mrs.Slater. I am going to miss seeing her beautiful smile and her precious “giggles”. I have enjoyed every second that I have gotten to know her. She is a beautiful person, from the inside out and also full of witty charm. She was my favorite. ❤️ My sincere condolences to Tom, Shannon , Michael and all of her loved ones. I will miss seeing you all also. What a beautiful family she has. Heaven definitely gained a new angel and now she can drink all the Coca Cola she wants.
🙏 God bless you all 💞
