    Mamma was a wonderful and loving woman. She certainly accomplished a lot during her life. By teaching, she carried many with her to a better place. I will miss her much. A friend of mine told me: There will always be a hole in your heart for her and that’s OK because Jesus will fill it. Sent with love from her middle daughter, Kathy
