Life is short. They say it takes a minute to find a special person and an hour to appreciate them. A day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them.

She will be forever treasured in our thoughts and hearts, starting with our father who she loved first and always, then the five daughters she raised with so much love and the grandchildren she spoiled so dearly with love.
