"Mom was always a positive, loving, and wonderful person who supported you no matter what you wanted to do. She loved everyone and was loved by everyone. She knew how to be a true Christian and practiced it everyday in her life. Mom was an animal lover that was always happy to see your dog, cat, or just the wild animals outside her window. She will be missed a lot. Her loving son Bob Daniel. "
