 We thank God for the opportunity of being raised in a Christian home with a loving Mother who taught us Love, Honesty and  Respect; but, most of all to Love God.  "Thank you" to the wonderful neighbors and friends who brought her food and blessed her with their love, friendship and a watchful eye.
