"Mom was a great example to everyone, but particularly to me and my six brothers and sisters. She was a talented and spiritual person, who exhibited uncommon courage in dealing with life's challenges and a strong, quiet faith in always trying to follow God's commandments. She was happy, positive, and loved life, but was looking forward to being reunited with my father who died 20 months ago, and other family members. She will be missed by family and friends."
