Our mother, grandmother and great grandmother touched so many lives as she passed through this life. Many people knew her as a special friend, grandma and the candy lady as everywhere she went she wanted to give a kiss to someone, so she handed them salt water taffy, a kiss from her to them. She touched so many lives, made a vast number of friends and most of all she was the best mom, grandma and great grandma that anyone could ever ask for. She went the extra mile, she loved like nobody could love and had a great love for God. She will always be remembered for the love she had for everyone, everywhere.
''We Love You''.
