May she rest in peace knowing that she has left an indelible mark on all those who were fortunate enough to have known her.  She was a true believer in "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you".  She is loved by all that were lucky enough to know her and will be deeply missed.  Her home was a safe haven for those in need.  She was the giver of advice when asked.  For our family she was 'True North' and our constant.
