She is a loving, strong, kind, and generous person. Her happiness has always been genuine and reflected onto the people around her. Her time was spent surrounded by her loved ones. She is the backbone of our family and always will be. We are heartbroken, but we know she is at peace and away from the sin of the world and now dwells in the house of the Lord forever.
We love you Mimi
Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.
