I’m so sorry I never got to meet this fabulous sounding lady because she raised such wonderful children she had to be the best! I know how heavy your hearts must be but just know she had so many reasons to be proud of how her life turned out since she had so many fantastic people in it that loved her dearly and will carry on her legacy and keep her memory alive. She will continue to shine on you and look for signs from her in the rainbows
