    She had more energy than anyone I have ever met. Her ability to keep up with outdoor chores, a beautiful garden, and still serve delicious meals (complete with dessert and homemade bread) on time was amazing. Yet she still had time to answer questions patiently, and patch up scraped knees. She was an all around wonderful person. I wish she could have lived forever.
