Mom was a kind and gentle woman, who graced her family with never-ending love and generosity, always thinking of them and putting them first. Although she was a quiet woman, knowing she was there always made everything alright. We will always thank God for placing this precious, little angel in our life. Thanks for everything mom. We will never forget you.
