    Even though I have not seen her in the last few years I always concider her a good friend. Working with her for many years you learned that she would do everything possible to help you. Knowing that she is no long here on earth I will miss her more. My prayers are with her family. I so wish I can come to the service but sadly I am not able to do so. She was one of those special people who made the world a better place .
