    The joy of The Lord was her strength, everyday.& we witnessed that in the way she lived. She was gentle of spirit, generous, loving,, compassionate, & kind.
    We will miss her wit & wisdom. She didn’t have that name for nothing. She had an air grace about her with a magnetic personality that drew you to her. Her beautiful eyes that twinkled & smiled at you.
