The two love birds enjoyed traveling together, watching tv and movies, spending time with family and friends, hosting pasta feast dinners, listening to audio books, attending church and bible study, singing in the church choir, sharing kisses that caused her to feel butterflies in her stomach, listening to jazz and R&B music, and laughing.

She blessed many with her infectious laugh, generous heart, witty comments, unconditional love, caring support, and artistic talents.
