Our mother was an amazing woman! Every person she met became her newest friend and she had friends, all that met her loved her! Mommy loved her family more than anything in the many world, she could not stand to go one day without seeing someone in the family. We all spoke to her every single day of our lives, if she did not hear from us, she would be on the phone calling us to say hello and say “I Love You”! She was exceptional in many ways, she was forgiving, held no grudges at all, she loved life, she loved people, she loved to dance and she loved cats especially her kitty Pretty Girl”. We will miss her TREMENDOUSLY, the sudden loss of our vibrant vivacious mother filled with life and love has stunned us all and left us hurting in a way we could never have imagined.
