One of the toughest women I have ever known. My father told me stories of how she cared for her own siblings growing up as she was the oldest. He loved her for that and we loved her because she did that all her life the way she knew how. How could one person love so many?
Her other side: ya, didn't want to mess with her. No sireeeeee!

Lana and family, sending you all sincere condolences. It was easy to see the love that you all had for your mother. You will miss her, certain events won't be the same without her there but the wonderful memories you have will keep her close and forever in your hearts. She was quite a lady! Ron & Pam
