Her smile was infectious and she had the best giggle. She loved to dance, was a member of the Silver Dolphins and enjoyed bowling.  Her favorite place in the world was her home in Silverwood.  Everyone who knew her loved her.  She was so easy to tease, but she loved it.  We had such a good time with her. She touched so many hearts and so many lives, she will be greatly missed by all.
