What a loving beautiful soul. She was Mom to many including me. I met her 34 years ago at the VA. She taught me many things about a good work ethic and how to be the best technician but she also taught me about life and love. I will miss her laugh. Prayers for peace to the family.
Peace Be With You…Rest In Peace My Friend
