You left us to soon; but to cope with your loss, I have to think that it was God's plan. We all love you immensely and you will be missed greatly. Thank you for everything that you did for all of us, including all of the hearts that you have touched with your friendly smile and fun spirit which was very contagious. No matter if you only had a piece of bread in your hand, you were always willing to take it out of your mouth to feed others. We love you forever.
Arrangements are under the direction of Whitehurst-McNamara Funeral Service.
