Dear Family and Friends,
I am passing this life to go Home. Very ready to be with Jesus. Have been quite sick with the long-term effects from kidney tumor (cancer) I had as a child.
Thinking of family and friends, I chose a little something to give you. I hope you remember that you were loved and cherished from my soul.
