Her energy and smile will forever be remembered. A beautiful soul, always reminding us to behave and to stay in love :). She gave us so many chuckles and short phone conversations, lol. I regret not ever having her chicken and dumplings but will team up with dad for a lesson in making them in her honor. Prayers for peace to our family and friends. Forever in our hearts, mom.
