Holding you and your dear Mother, grandmother and great grandmother in prayer as you all endure her parting. What a legacy she leaves and what a beacon of light she shone on all who we’re lucky enough to love her. Fond memories of her will remain at the top of our list and I am sure you all are sharing some right now. She could make anyone feel like they were the most important person at any given moment. I long to keep her alive by continuing to spread some of the goodness she scattered throughout each day. Love you all. ❤️
