I am heartbroken to learn the news of the passing of my former mother in law and friend. She was so full of life, so energetic, always smiling and just brought joy to all. She never met a stranger and always made you feel welcome and always part of the family. You were such a joy and a bright light fir all. Rest In Peace ma, until we meet again.
