There were no public accolades or awards, just service to a life well lived. Her dedication to God and family was evident in the selfless way she lived her life. Responsibilities to family and dedication to one another took precedent over opportunities for personal betterment. Hardly a day would pass that someone would not quip that they were her favorite, but the truth is that she had no favorites. She was a great woman with a strong, but soft heart. If she had but one fault, it could be said that she loved too much. She was a treasure that will be sadly missed in this world, but will surely shine from Heaven.
