    May the family be blessed with the memory of this very special lady. She was a constant source of joy and encouragement. And spunk! We will miss her greatly, until we meet again, where she is singing “The Love of God” at the top of her lungs in Jesus’ presence even now, I’d bet! Heroes like her don’t come along all that often. With much love, Jeff n Ann
