What an amazing woman and multi generational friend of our entire family! She touched three generations with her kindness & cookies, inspired us with her deep love of God & her spirituality, and shared her innate JOY & humor with all of us!!
In my mind's eye, I can see her storming the gates of heaven - proceeded by a joyful "HEY" and a roar of laughter! Heaven will never be the same...and neither will we! Blessed to have had you as a friend, and for making a difference in our lives.
