Lisa and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I knew that she wasn't doing
good, but it is so bad to have to see them go as well. She was just a sweet lady and I thought a lot of her. She is at peace now . May God be with all
of you and cherish the memories that you have made together. Sorry I could not make it to the service. I have had the shingles and was able to go. Praying for all of you.
