On Feb. 5, 2020, our beautiful Wife, Mother and Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Cousin, went Home to dance endlessly and rejoice with our Lord Savior. She was amazing in every way, loved more than anyone we knew and was always finding a way to give back to anyone that needed. She always had her door open to anyone that needed a place to stay or just get away for a little bit. She filled our bellies with her "made with love" cooking and her laugh and hugs were still felt days later. She definitely loved more!
