She never met a stranger in her life time and everyone was a friend and someone she could talk to and she always saw the best in everyone no matter what. She loved to cook pies and cakes and always wanted to share them with everyone. She would make a cake or pie and call the local first responders to come and get it and they would in the ambulance no less. She always had a hug for everyone it could even be a stranger and she would give them a hug. She said that everyone deserves a many hugs a day and she said it was the best medicine they could get.
