To whomever reads this, this is my Mom and she was the best in the world. Of course we all think our Moms are the greatest, but I just want you to know that ours truly was the greatest. And a wonderful Christian who is now with God and Dad and all of the others who have gone before. WE LOVE YOU MOM!! REST IN PAIN FREE PEACE.
