A very special friend who never forgot a birthday, anniversary or a memory. A friend who made me laugh, gave me comfort, support, and love. A friend for 67 years, a friend I loved, I friend I'll miss and a friend I'll always be thankful for, a friend I'll never forget.

To the family, I hope you find comfort and peace in the memories and love you shared. She was proud of all of you and her grandchildren. May her memory be a blessing and may it be eternal.
