She was a loving, funny, full of life, Godly lady who loved to cook and take care of others. I have many many memories of trips to Ark from Ca with Uncle Bud. She picked us up from the airport and we went on many trips. She was a wonderful cook/ baker. I still have many items from Home Interior that she loving picked out for us!!! She was always there with those big bear hugs!!! Can't wait to get another one of those things in Heaven where we will see her again !!! Thank you, Lord!!!
