A special thank you to Ramona, Joseph and Wynde who, with great personal sacrifice provided the round-the-clock care that allowed Mom to stay in her own home.

Mom lived life to the fullest. She loved God, Sunday morning church with Joseph and Kathy, her family, country music, good food, playing guitar, singing the old songs and a glass of wine.

Her daughter Ramona said it best: She is a Godly woman.
