A life well lived is a precious gift of hope and strength and grace, from someone who has made our world a brighter, better place.

It’s filled with moments, sweet and sad, with smiles and sometimes tears, with friendships formed and good times shared and laughter through the years.

A life well lived is a legacy of joy and pride and pleasure, a living, lasting memory our grateful hearts will treasure ~
