    Martha, Francis, Michelle, Wanda, Glen ,Steve,and beloved grandchildren, if mom was able she would be there for you and I think each of you will understand why she is not. She prayed for grandma often and always asks about her. She would tell you if she could that grandma is with her dad, sons and daughters that passed on before. She loves you all very much.
