She was such a giving person. I always thought of her like my second mom. I've tried so many times to make chocolate gravy like she did, but just not been successful yet. She will be missed, but will hold memories of her in my heart. Mary Judd

Sherry Lynn, Mike, Jackie & Family I am so heart broken in the loss of this precious lady that I thought of as a second mom. Oh how I wish I could be there with you during this time, but know I have all of you in my thoughts and prayers. I love you with all my heart, Rita
