Ever since last night, my thoughts have gone back to conversations with this wonderful, truly Christian and totally altruistic woman from south Fayetteville. I hope to share a few few things I know about her life. I just can't do it today.

She was a credit to south Fayetteville. She stuck to what she believed was right. And, even though she had a very small income, she helped anyone she saw in need.
