She was a very kind and loving person. She never had cross word or unkind thing to say. Her favorite song and saying was “ You are my sunshine” She felt that way about people and God. She’s in heaven now and I know she’s giving her big loving smile to God and everyone. I love you Mom

Rick, I've known your mom almost as long as I've known you. She was a lovely lady. I'm so glad I had the chance to see her last summer and join in her birthday celebration. Both Jane and I extend our sincerest condolences to you and your family.
