She was a loving, patient, warm-hearted and giving Aunt. She always made me feel special. I loved spending time at their home whether it was Dallas or The Ranch. I looked forward to each visit because I knew we would laugh and have the best time. She was an awesome example of Christ and I loved her dearly. She will be greatly missedđź’—Love to all her childrenđź’—
