Maribeth, you welcomed Kierra and I into your home and loved Kierra as your own. You helped me so much with her while we lived in San Diego. You always thought of others and never once complained about helping someone. Such a big heart!
Rest in Peace my friend! Praying for you and your family that all may find peace at this time.
