Mom was such a gem. She always had a smile and offered a helping hand to everyone. You never heard her say anything unkind to or about anyone. Nothing will ever take her place. We are thankful for the amazing woman of God she was and the many many hearts she touched while she was here. What a beautiful legacy she leaves behind.
