She was a beautiful lady with such a beautiful personality. I remember her from the old Pyrons. She always made my day when I walked into that store. She was an awesome individual. She was always so vibrant and sweet. I am sorry but your loss. Prayers go out to the family during this time of sorrow. She was an angel on earth and now an angel in heaven.

Family, there are no words that can describe my sympathy in your time of grieving. Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Love you all very much.
