Her favorite being “In the Garden” and old Elvis gospel music. A favorite song to sing was “Sweet Chariot” while she was swinging on her swing. She loved flowers with Roses being her favorite.

We all try but no one to date has been able to match her perfect recipe. She was a beautiful woman who was always dressed to the nines. Loved to shop.
