My mother was the most exuberant, generous and positive person. She was a friend to everyone. Her motto was live life to the fullest–“while I am here, I will live”.
Until the time of her passing, she continued to help people, take on new challenges, and create new adventures. Age was only a number to her. At the time of her death, the loss was unbearable to our entire family and all of her grandchildren. Knowing that her generous, vibrant spirit lives on in another and even at the end of her life she continued to help someone has always been a huge inspiration and comfort to our family.
