Through any and all obstacles put in her path, her faith and love for the Lord never faltered. She loved her family and enjoyed each and every occasion to get together with them to share feast and fun. She taught her children there are no gray areas in Christianity, only right and wrong. She was a very strong presence in each of their lives. She will be greatly missed.
