She was a loving sister and a good friend to those that she came in contact. As the youngest of the girls I had a very good role model to live up to. I can’t express in words what her passing means to me. But I know she is with her Lord and Savior, our parents, sister, Roberta, and a host of other family members and friends. I love you Mar.

I don’t know what path I would have taken if you hadn’t been part of my life. Thank you for the love, time and acceptance you always showed to me. Love to your family!
