We will always remember that special smile and big heart and hugs. You were there for Mom and all of us through many journeys, in the ups and downs that life has thrown our way. You have lived well, laughed often, accomplished lots and traveled many roads. It is time you rested and fly to the stars. We will always remember you in our hearts, we will always remember...
We love you. Your loving daughters, Sis and Kathy and family.
