I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful woman at Laurelbrooke. I watched her kick someone out of her chair. Lol. I told her she reminded me of my grandma and it all went from there. She made me a part of her wonderful family, and they were all very accepting. She spoke her mind and made sure everyone knew she was "The Boss. " Haha. She told me stories about her love and her passions and her family and how proud she was of them. She always had a smile for me. She was encouraging and loving with a huge heart and a lot of spunk. ☺️ She was truly an inspiration. I am very blessed to have had this woman as a part of my life. Her love and encouragement will be something I will forever cherish. She made me promise that if I want something in life I will go after it until it's mine, made sure I stay stubborn, and made sure I knew she loved me. Thank you, Paulie, for your wonderful words and love and for being such a big part of my life. I love you! Fly high, Beautiful Angel! Always in my thoughts! Until we meet again! ❤️🙏😇

Sorry to hear about this, I didn't know her personally, but every time I would go to McKinley Health Center to visit my mom, she would always have a big smile and a hello, as I passed by. What a ray of sunshine 🌞!
