My mom was a very talented person. She could sing so beautifully. I know she will be remembered by her wonderful smile and all the love she gave to everyone she met. My dad always called her his angel. Mom is singing in the heavenly choir now.

Thank you Paulette for sponsoring my mom's memorial.

Thank you Jim for redoing mom's photo. It is wonderful.
