She was one of the first people I met when we moved to Carthage. Although I did not know her well, I remember her bright smile and kind heart. Prayers wrapping her loved ones are going up. God bless you.

We spent many a break at work out in the car sharing our lives. She was an awesome strong woman. She's with sweet Leiton now smiling down on loved ones left behind.

Will miss her. She had a "big" personality and big heart and an easy smile.
