It has been said that traveling through life is like sailing on an ocean. When the sky is clear and the water is calm the voyage is without care. However, when the skies are dark and seas are troubled, we need a star to guide us. For 60 years that star has been you. Your countless acts of quiet heroism be it a word of encouragement, an understanding, sympathetic ear, untold hours to find just the right gift to cheer, the thousands of hours spent to make sure that occasions and holidays are memorable or just always being you without reservation even when you are beyond tired you have been a true example of love and giving. We remember! Heroes deserve recognition. This poem is a testament to your sacrifice, dedication, caring and love.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, David, Richard and Bob; her sister, Sue; her sister-in-law, Janet Aler; and brother-in-law, Darryl Aler.
