She treasured her family but also her many friends She loved the Lord most of all and enjoyed being involved in her church and missions. She enjoyed life and made sure to give God the glory for it. She was dedicated to her relationship with her heavenly Father and was not ashamed to show it. She loved reading His word and made it a daily practice. She loved working with children and doing crafts and sewing. But the her passion was not a physical sewing but a spiritual sewing of the knowledge of God into the lives of those that she came in contact with. She had a beautiful smile no matter how she felt physically or mentally, because she knew she was in God's hands. She will be loved and missed by family and friends.
Her void may seem to come too soon for us but with God His timing is perfect
