many. She had many talents and life skills.


The loyalty of her friends sustained her during her life and she

often said how blessed she was to have so many great friendships

dedicated. She did have a chance to know each of them. How much

more blessed can she be? Your silent kindness is gratefully

acknowledged and whatever gratitude I express is wholly
