She has touched so many lives in her time that she will live on forever in the hearts and minds of everyone who knew her. I have so many great childhood memories of her that I will never forget. Summer visits with her, Randy and Joy were some of my fondest memories. Many prayers for her family at this most difficult time. Steve Selvey Besse
