My sweet memory is the day this kind soul married my brother. The day John Taylor was born. The times my daughter's shared hours with her and the family. The kindness she had for animals. They kindness to raise a dog named Bubba because my daughter was allergic to dogs. The times she stood strong in life when people around her passed away or life got hard. She worked hard. She was loved and admired by many she will be missed.
