    I could always count on Mom to be available for help, support and advise. She was our families ‘rock’ and it will be very hard to imagine life without her. Our family was the most important value in her life and we loved her always. There will never be a day I don’t think about her loving ways. She enriched my life. Her loving daughter Brenda
