Thanks to the family for sharing this picture of their Mom with the rest of us. This is the image of my precious sister I want engraved in my memory. Although we were separated in age by 14 years, we became very good friends and shared so many good experiences together. She was a blessing to her whole community as well as the family. Blessings and Love, your Sister Leah
