    What a great photo! I can hear her laughing & enjoying everyone around her! Now she’s HOME and we’re on our WAY! Her life was all about Jesus, and making HIM known! Words can’t express the loss of all who love her, but ‘Soon and Very Soon, We’re Going to Meet the King.” Praying for the holes in your hearts, Pam, Paul, Peg & Pete! Sooo much love!
