She is already missed and will be…

Mom grew up in the country and after meeting and marrying Dad, began her trek across the world.  So she had a well rounded appreciation for what it takes to live in this world and knew no strangers and loved helping people.  She loved the Catholic Church and all things Catholic.  Some of her hobbies were gardening, sewing and quilting and mostly just being at the beach.  She also was a great animal lover and wouldn’t fish because she would have to hurt the worm saying “why can’t everyone just eat grass????”  She was a low maintenance type of person and knew how to live simple.  She will be missed…
