From all of us that knew her, we say “THANK YOU”. Thank you for the memories and the lessons.

Thank you for showing us what it looks like to put others before yourself, to NEVER complain, and to tackle each day with strength and courage no matter how difficult or unfair it seems. You will be missed but we find comfort in knowing if we asked, “How are you doing?” You would say… “I’M FINE”
