She was the smartest and kindess person that I had ever known. She was always kind and loving to me. And the arts and crafts that she created and made with love were amazing. What a talent she had. She will be missed by those of us left behind, but we are happy that she is now in Heaven, reunited with those loved ones that she has missed. And she is no longer in pain. God bless all of her brothers and sister, her children and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
