It would be impossible for me to celebrate my mother's life without celebrating her faith.

She trusted in His "plan" for her life. When she was diagnosed with cancer, she would say, "This is not my plan, but His plan." Mom taught us to ground ourselves by trusting in the Lord, to let him lead us in all that we do. She challenged us frequently to re-think, re-look and re-consider using a Godly view. This is how we would like you to remember her and her life: Live lovingly and peacefully knowing that God has a plan for your life. Our family would like to extend our deepest thanks to all our friends and family who supported us on this journey. We love you and we thank you for all that you have done.
