ìWe will never forget you.

You brought sunshine to any room.

You turned lifeís disasters into laughter.

You were everyoneís favorite aunt, mom, sister, cousin, friend and grandmother.

With your passing, you leave a hole in our hearts

and that will not be filled until Jesus comes to take us all home

to be together in Heaven forever.

Rest in the peace of His love.î
