Although we will miss her tremendously, she is now in the Savior's Loving Arms, rejoicing in heaven with her husband and all the loved ones that have gone on before. She made a lasting impression on each and every person that was BLESSED enough to know her. And all her loved ones that know Jesus as their Personal Savior (John 3:16, Romans 10:3 & 10:9 ) will be reunited in heaven with her one glorious day!
