We absolutely loved Mrs. Hinkley! She was always so much fun to be around. I especially enjoyed being around her because she was always so relaxed and calm. I know that she enjoyed being around her daughters and grandchildren as you could see what joy they brought her. She was always involved in their lives. God bless her in heaven.

From one daughter to another, with heart in hand, I'm thinking of you Dani and sending you love and light during this difficult time. I've been giving mine even more hugs and kisses lately. Your mom knew she was safe and cared for in your loving hands. It's not the same, but I know she's just a thought away and her light will continue to shine upon you. You'll feel her poke at you in different ways, reminding you to stay strong and true to you. Sending you soft gentle hugs.
