Family Comments: She had a remarkably kind and gentle smile with a personality to match. She was so ready to see her Jesus and although she will be greatly missed, everyone who knew and loved her, are rejoicing that sheâ€™s in His presence today. She made her preparations for this day long ago when she accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior and was saved. Her heartâ€™s cry to everyone that she knew. was and is, â€śHave you made yours?â€ť
