Not only my sister in law but best friend. So many memories. One of the sweetest souls I ever knew. We laughed together cried together and disagreed just for the fun of it. I will forever carry her in my heart. To all her children who she loved more than life itself I am so sorry that you had to watch her suffer for so long and then lose her. A great loss for everyone who knew her.
