Our Mom was born in a tiny coastal village called Francois but she always called it Fransway. She always loved to talk about where she came from especially the friar. The most important thing to her was family. She was always there for everyone of us. She was always a storyteller and loved to tell stories about her sisters and brother. She always said her sister Lydia was the Boss but we find that hard to believe. She was babysitter to her other three siblings and she laugh about saying she put them too bed early because she was mad at Nan & Grandpa & Aunt Lydia was gone to someone’s house to play cards and she was left babysitting. She loved them dearly though next to it was her children who she doted on. Her grandchildren were always right and the best at everything, they could do no wrong. She loved to laugh and had a wonderful sense of humor but she wasn’t perfect, when she got mad or thought someone was hurting someone belong to her watch out. She was always there for the underdog and always taught her family to pay it forward. We all will miss her goodnight texts and I love you God Bless but now she is our angel.
