She was a delight to visit and had a wonderful outlook on life – never seemed to feel sorry for herself and saw nothing but good – at least that\’s how she appeared to me. And she had a memory I envied though I was over 30 years younger. My illness prevented me from visiting her these past few years, but I will never forget her. There is another angel in heaven
