    I am so sorry. I didn’t know until I just read this. She was one of the best for sure. I never witnessed her be anything other than kind to everyone around her. She was a great mother as well as grandmother. She will surely be missed by many. May God stay close to you all and heal your broken hearts. She was truly one of the best.
