Our Mom was such a strong lady touched by all the beautiful friends along the road of life. She so loved helping people and was so appreciative and grateful of everyone who came into her life. We will all miss her cooking, especially her amazing baked bread. So Mom, rest in peace with Dad, and the love story starts all over again.
