  1. What a precious soul and a great wife and Mother. She raised an amazing daughter that I am honored to call friend. I will always remember the energy and passion for life that she had, especially when the music started. Her eyes lit up and a big ole smile formed as she and Pam took the dance floor or streets, wherever they were. Precious memories of the two of them together that I thankful I got to witness. Truly beautiful and she will be missed.

    I took care of her when I worked at her assisted living. She was the sweetest, she loved to dance & make you laugh. She will be truly missed💜
