I am so sorry for the loss of this amazing woman. I didn't have the pleasure to know her that long but she was a great lady full of life. She welcomed everyone she met with open arms and made you feel like she had known you forever. She has touched so many people's lives and she will never be forgotten. My prayers are with her family.
