    The obituary was perfect. She always seemed to find the funny side and could twist a story to get a laugh. I hope that you all were able to find some of her drawings, I remember so well how she liked to sketch in her younger years. She was able to find peace in her later years when she met and married Larry.
    She suffered for so long and fought a hard battle. I am sorry for your loss. She has gone home to dance with her friends and family who have waited patiently for her arrival.

    Sympathy, Prayers and love sent to all of you.
    Aunt Diane and Uncle John
