My family and my self will miss her giggle and distinct laughter. She was always glad to see you and would definitely talk your ear off. Though the years there have been a lot of memories made I can even recall some from child hood, but most are in the later years and how she has always knew exactly what she wanted and would let you know without a doubt. She would have me come and take care of repairs or just up keep or whatever she needed, and trusted that it would be done to her expectations, but you better make sure it was before you were done because as we know she would definitely let you know. But she was always just so joyful and a pleasure to be around, and her and Uncle Richard were truly loved and were loving caring people and will truly be missed.
