She fought hard to beat this Heart condition. She may be gone, and we will weep because we miss her and love her, but this is not the E.N.D. for her (Energy Never Dies).

The Family asks that in lieu of gifts, that donations either be made to help her sons pay for this funeral. If that has been achieved. Then it’s the families wishes these donations be paid to the Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute.
