Just one??? I have sooo many memories running thru my head right now. She was a special woman. I remember her giving us heck... many times I dont know why, Kenny, we were perfect kids! Sleepovers and camping come to mind. She was a strong woman in all ways.. especially when it came to her loved ones. She will be missed. Keep her memories close and allow her to bring a smile to your face

Sending our deepest condolences and prayers to her family. She will be missed by both my mother and I at bingo. We both enjoyed our conversations with her. Being a veteran myself, I also enjoyed hearing her tell me about her husband who had served. She had a steadfast faith in God and loved her family, friends, and pets.
