I am so Blessed to have had you for a sister in law. A Great woman now has her Angel Wings and Halo. A Wonderful woman, a true inspiration, never complaining about hard times, didn't always have anything to share with anyone except the gift of giving herself from the heart. The Best Gift Ever. Thank you for accepting me into your life. Connie Orr
