  1. She was so precious to us and will be missed terribly! I don’t think we ever had a cross word in the 24 years we shared together. I couldn’t have asked for a better mother-in-law, or grandmother for my boys! Life and holidays will be forever changed, but we will hold all the precious memories we shared with her dearly in our hearts. We find comfort knowing she is now in the arms of her beloved Larkin in heaven. We now have a new guardian angel watching over us. Life is so precious as this is a reminder to always tell our loved ones how we feel about them and savor every moment we have with them.
