She was only 53 and the best friend anyone could ever ask for. It has made me stop and realize that I need to stay in better contact with my family and friends. I will always remember her beautiful smile and how just knowing her made my life complete. She was the kind of person who could light up a room just by walking in it. Her wonderful kindness will be missed by anyone who knew her. I loved her very much.
