She had a full and blessed life of service to God and the People around her. We are grateful to have had her in our lives for so long, and delighted she is now with the Mighty Lord she so often spoke of and, all her loved ones that preceded her departure. We want to thank all her family and friends for the many visits and prayers. She is finally whole and at peace.
