  1. She had one of the kindest hearts of anyone I ever met. I loved visiting with her and seeing her at all of life’s events. Birthday parties, soccer games baby showers everything…. At 96 years old she would attend everything her family was involved in with a smile on her face and looking so beautiful. She is/was a true inspiration of someone we all should strive to be. Lots of love for her and her family…Racquel Junell
