Of all of her accomplishments, both personal and professional, none was more significant that her gift of love for her family and friends. She made a difference every day in the lives of those she touched. Always gracious, always loyal, always ready to help others, both her lifelong friends and friends she made later in life were enriched by her kindness and care. Her role as Nana to her family had no bounds or limitations. Her legacy will be one of perseverance, quiet strength, and egalitarian respect for all.
