I'll always remember you for taking me in so many years ago and treating me like your own daughter. you loved my little girl and gave us a home and helped me get on my feet. You taught me to cook (goodness knows I couldn't boil water without burning it) and still today almost 40 yrs later I think of you when I make Macaroni Salad. You were the mother figure I needed and wonderful Grandmother to my children and for that I will always love you. RIP Sweet Lady
