I will miss my dear sister-in-law very deeply.. She was never one to be judgemental, She would open up with a listening ear, and she was just a wonderful person to talk to, with a beautiful way about herself. My wife, Nikki, will be at the services, and I will be represented by her. This has been a terrible loss for the both of us, but we are comforted by the fact that she is safely in the arms of Jesus. With a saddened heart, you will truly be missed. Condolences to her immediate family. She was a beautiful person here on earth.God bless her soul.We love you.
