She was very resourceful and could juggle many things at once. She is a gem and everyone that ever met her, loves her. She is a loyal friend and has a wonderful heart. Always joining in to help the needy and helpless whenever she could. She has the biggest heart and the best smile. She loved her yard and always finding new ways to make it look beautiful.

Until we meet back up in Heaven… ‘We will always carry her memory in our hearts’. She is cremated and she will remain with her husband until further notice. I Never Saw Your Wings By an Unknown Author How is it that I never saw your wings when you were here with me? When you closed your eyes and soared to the Heavens I could hear the faint flutter of you wings as you left. Your body no longer on this side your spirit here eternally I see your halo shine. I close my eyes and see the multi-colored wings surround me in my saddest moments and my happiest times. Mother my angel God has given you your assignment, always my mother forever my angel. You fly into my dreams and when I am asleep I feel your wings brush against my face wiping away the tears I shed since I can no longer hold you in my arms but in my heart. You earned those wings dear mother and you will always be my angel eternal.
