I am so sorry. As other wrote, words can't express how I feel. She was an amazing mother, friend, wife and the list goes on. Her smile always made me smile. I will always remember her at our volleyball tournaments offering water and snacks to us. She was a beautiful lady. You and your family are in my prayers.
