Mom will be greatly missed. She loved flowers and spent many hours enjoying them, as she did her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Mom loved her family and leaves us with countless warm memories to ease our grief.


You will always be loved! Say Hi to Papa for us…we know you two are together again forever.
