You are all in my thoughts and Prayers. I pray God will wrap his arms around you all and give you comfort during this time and the days ahead. I will miss seeing her working in her yard and miss the welcoming smile and friendly wave when I went by her house. She will be missed by so many, a Beacon of Light.....always shining, always welcoming....always there
