Too many memories to list here. She was a true IWP (Irish Warrior Princess). She loved her Jesus and her kids with a passion, When she said she was praying for you she placed you on a list that was very important to her. She took that list everywhere. She would ask often about the things and people on that list. She leaves a big hole in the hearts for those who knew and loved her. Heaven will be a great reunion. Thank for being a big part of our lives "MOM" ,
