Honey, as we called her, was one of the best mothers-in-law anyone can ever ask for. After my mother passed, I would always tell her she became my mother. She was always patient and the smile she possessed touched everyone's heart. Her strength and love shown in the darkest hours lets me remember her as a beautiful guardian angel who was always there when I needed her.

Aunt Honey's greatest blessings are displayed through her children and grandchildren. She had an easy way of doing and explaining things, as though they were effortless.
She and I could always talk at length about almost anything. I miss her already, therefore I know her children all miss her as well.
Now it's time to get your sweet rest Aunt Honey.
