Although we’re going to miss you, You’ll never be forgotten. Her race was long and hard. But still she hung on. She cherished every moment that life had to give. When the time came she went calmly, never saying a word; for God had finally chosen to take her home. For she fought a long battle and ran a good race. You will always be in our hearts.
She was laid to rest during a private family memorial.
