She was honorable. A holy woman of character and integrity, she always loved the same. She never changed, no matter her circumstance. She was strong and resilient.

Our Angel has certainly gained her wings. I know the heavenly choir was excited to see her enter in. She is no longer here with us in body, but her spirit will be with all of us forever.
No more pain, no more sorrow. That’s all we’ve ever wanted for you Mom. We love you, until we meet again. Kiss everyone for us.
