She was responsible for maintaining the close family bonds amongst all her children, grandchildren, and friends. Her personality, sense of humor, and charisma radiated through her smile.
“Remember when we said, when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won’t be sad, we’ll be glad
For all the life we’ve had
And we’ll remember when.”
