My mother was not only a wonderful mother, but she was an awesome daughter, wife, grandmother, sister, cousin, and friend too.  She was the type of person that always left an impression on others … you never forgot her!  She had a very loving spirit and loved to help others!

On the morning of October 6, 2008, my mother passed away due to melanoma.  She was initially diagnosed with melanoma in 2004.  She beat it!  However melanoma fiercely returned in 2008, and there was nothing that could be done.  Her body was too weak and tired to fight it the second time around.  She left her family and friends with a host of memories … she will forever be missed and loved!
