Even though I didnt see her that often, she was always the same when I did. She was such a kind, loving, easy going yet stern when she needed to be (like her brother, my daddy), and her faith and christian life example was unreal. I am certainly going to miss her too. Love and prayers for each and everyone of you.Elsie
