Mimi was such a blessing to everyone who knew her, and sometimes God knows someone who needs her blessing now just as we have in the past. While celebrating her life, we should remember that God needed another angel to help him and her fireball spirit and kind heart will always be remembered and live through us.

I loved my grandma/meme. I hope I grow up to be half the woman she was – strong, kind, and full of personality.
