Her love for her children and grandchildren was unconditional. She loved being at the shore with her daughter, son in law and granddaughters in the summer. She loved the beach or just sitting on the deck in the sun, and she loved people, dancing, good food, good wine, laughter and conversation with family and friends. She enjoyed life. She also loved watching Days of Our Lives and reading her newspapers while soaking in the warm sun.
