So sorry for your loss. She was a special woman to me and I have a few tears in my eyes as I write this - AND and a Smile!! We spent many many times sitting and talking and laughing around the white kitchen table - probably with a little advice and instruction. She and Joe raised 4 amazing daughters providing them with all the love they needed and the best educations possible. Rest In Peace! "May God Hold You in His Hands Until We Meet Again" 😢❤️😇
