I remember always feeling accepted and a part of this extended large family. This beautiful lady was always welcoming and gracious no matter how long between visits or family parties. I never heard a negative word ever spoken of her. I'm sure she will be deeply missed here and I'm sure Heaven is rejoicing over their new soul. She is surely dancing now. May God comfort all of the people she leaves behind. I send my deepest love to all.
