I remember she was always a "matter of fact" lady and not much got past her. If you needed advice she was always able to provide as she had "been there done that" for many situations. She loved her family dearly and was always surrounded by at least 1 or more at all times. You couldn't help but think OMG, the first time you ever met her and had an opinion that she didn't see the same way as you. After you got to know her you couldn't help but to love her as she was a very strong willed woman loved by her family and friends. She will be sadly missed. Vandel, I love you. I just had to get to know you first, after doing so you realized that her views were for the most part the best ones by far. RIP!
