A beautiful soul with a heart-warming smile…she never met a stranger or failed in her compassion. Like a second family, both she and Jeff embraced me like I was one of their own. I will miss her but rejoice in her reunion with her sweet husband. For the remaining family, I offer my sincerest prayers and continual friendship. God bless you all.
