  • "No words can describe how much this woman meant to me. My Aunt was one of a kind and she was one of, if not thee strongest woman I ever had the honor to know. She was a do it yourself kind person who never backed down from a challenge. I admired her for many things but mostly for the fact that she was giving of herself and cared for people. She has taught me so very much. She was loving, kind and generous with her knowledge and special skills/gifts. She has, no doubt, touched many lives in her lifetime and at times, was like a Morher to me; always there for me when I needed a guiding hand. May you be resting in sweet peace now with our Lord and Savior. "
