This a memory from the family. It’s somehow difficult for us to find the right words to describe and honor the woman who meant the world to us most of our lives. The woman who always put her life second to her kids and who showed the love of God to everyone. She was so generous and cared for many besides her family. She was such a source of strength and support for us. We will miss her immensely. Her smile and laugh and her unwavering love. What a wonderful mom, grandma and great grandma she was. We love you so much and we are so thankful that we will see you again one day, because God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whosoever believes him will not perish but have eternal life!
