The joy of her life was her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her love for her family showed on the walls of her home where pictures upon pictures of her most prized possessions were displayed. Her joy was complete when family and friends gathered at the lake where she could tend both her family and her flower gardens. Both thrived under her patient love and encouragement. You could catch her skiing across the lake at 72 years old, but you wouldn’t dare stop her because, though she was little, she was certainly fierce. Friends and family alike would leave filled to the brim with love and Rotel dip, and the sweet memories of a woman whose style was as bright and sparkly as she was.
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
