only would she help anybody in this world ... She often thought more of others than she did herself. She was never afraid to speak the unspeakable, most often it was at the absolute wrong time, but then again when is it ever “the right time.” She had a heart as big as the world. All lives that were touched by this most humble person was better for it. She loved talking, working on the water, and cocktails, but she got the most joy out of life helping others.
