Psalm 28:7 The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusts in Him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him.

Her faith and love of Jesus was a light that shined so bright through her. She loved her Connect Church family and was a pillar in her church. Her smile, hugs, kisses and her love to talk to everyone will be greatly missed.
