A beautiful video tribute for a beautiful lady.

Marge Halford May 25 2019 12:00 AM

What a great person who was loved by so many! Her infectious smile, sparkling eyes and positive attitude was a gift to those who encountered her. What an inspiration! The video tribute captures her personality and spunk! I am so blessed that God caused our paths to cross. I will never forget the times we shared, hugs, tears and laughter. I will keep the family in my thoughts and prayers.
