What a beautiful lady and she will be missed by many friends and family. Her crafts were the best and always enjoyed using them and getting more.
She is with her husband and sisters and especially Kathy who she adored. May God Bless all of you and give you comfort.
Our deepest sympathy.

What a shock. What a talented woman with all of her crafts. She has been a friend for a very long time. May she be at peace in heaven with Don, Kathy and all of her sisters.
