    What a lovely, kind lady, Mother,
    Grandmother and Great Grandma rolled into a tiny but mighty person. We had the pleasure of meeting her when our daughter, Mackenzie, married her grandson, Adam Friedman. She gave them a precious gift starting out their lives together that they will always cherish. She was a treasure to all who knew her.
