    What a lovely lady. We were all blessed to know her and to be neighbors. Yes…she moved in next door
    with FIVE boys. We couldn’t believe someone had five boys. We soon found out how that works. She
    always loved all of us….seven boys then two girls. We love your family and send our love and condolences
    to your family. Thank you for the years of friendship and good neighbors.

  • I am deeply sorry for your loss . Please be assured that there is comfort to be found in the loving promise at John 11:25.

  • my first love
