I’ve had a good life, loved my family, have been blessed to see my great grandchildren grow. My life was sad and glad, Life is what you make of it, dying leaves a space, so cry awhile, laugh at good memories, and go on, life continues, I lost many loved ones and I had to go on and you will too. Make good memories so the young ones get to know the Lord, my hobbies were flowers, crocheting, Mr. Wiggles and God’s Beautiful World-Enjoy life, it’s short.– Mom
