She leaves a legacy of “Strength for every day, Perseverance in every situation, and Love that is unconditional.” Her life’s treasures were held in her arms as she cared her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, great great grandchildren; and her riches were the family and friends on who’s life she leaves an eternal hand print.
