So difficult to let go of this beautiful, spirited woman who was so full of life. She definitely put up a good fight until the end. Such a strong personality that I looked up to all my life. I will miss that bubbly laughter and generous heart and will look for her light when we meet again. Bless you all for sharing her with us as a family. We love you.
