Sorry to say, I just heard this sad news. Can't say how sorry I am for your loss!! She was a great lady and will be greatly missed! I consider myself lucky to have known her as a fellow dance mom. She was always very kind and cheerful which isn't always the case in that environment. I will continue to keep your family in my thoughts & prayers!!
