My Story

We will always remember her for her faith in the Lord, her loving spirit of kindness, comfort, mercy, and forgiveness.
While she was here God gave her a gift that would glorify him and touch many with expressions of poetry that melted the heart. Her laugh and smile were contagious and soon we all would be joining in. She loved and became a friend to every person she met. She greeted everyone with "Hey sugar" I'm sure you can hear her now saying "Hey sugar, rejoice for me for I am in heaven."
