To  The Family,

How incredible that she lived so many years and until recently could lived on her own and as Teresa told me she still had such a quick mind and wit. What a leagacy she leaves behind to have so many grand children and great grandchildren and a true blessing that she lived to see all of those generations.  Condolences to all the family members.
