Jim, Robin and Jr. I am so sorry. She was my good friend for at least 40 years. I will never, ever forget the good times we had at school and at Choir practice. I was so blessed to know such a kind, loving and giving person. She was an amazing strong woman. She suffered so much with several health problems but never once gave up. Her faith was so strong and got her through so many tough times. I loved her so much and I will miss her wonderful smile and sense of humor. I know God has another angel in heaven. May she Rest In Peace with no more suffering and pain. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Her faith will help you all get through this difficult. Love and sincere sympathy, Bea
