One of the most precious people to know. Never a bad word spoken. Loved her dearly! My condolences to all her wonderful family. One thing I remember is how she loved fresh beets! She would ask me to bring her some that Odis had grown. She was a very gracious lady and will be missed by everyone that knew her.

She was such a sweet lady with a big smile on her face & always made time to ask how others were doing. God Bless each of you & keep all of you strong through your faith in Him.
