  1. She was such a blessing. I recall her saying to me when we met – literally anywhere- “let’s love and enjoying her big hug. I will miss her so very much. Knowing she is in her heavenly home surrounded by family and friends is a comfort to all.
    I’ll miss her playing the piano “Love Lifted Me” and “The Entertainer”. She was a delight to everyone who knew her.
