I always enjoyed visiting Oveda when I was growing up, she had a cheerful loving personality that would light up the room. Just being in her presence gave me a good feeling inside. When I would visit her at the lake house I remember fishing on the dock with her. She enjoyed fishing off the dock and soaking up the beautiful lake view. She will surely be missed and never forgotten. I pray for healing for the family and that each family member will have a closer walk with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
