So hard to lose another member of our family. John’s memory is that she did not tolerate bullying, a very loving person. This family lost their mother and father at a very early age and John was raised by his loving sisters. They did a great job! Not an easy life but this is a family with great cohesiveness and a lot of love. She lived a long life and we love her dearly. May God be welcoming her to everlasting life.
