She loved going out and singing karaoke and dreamed of one day becoming a country singer. She was the life of the party she always had a smile on her face and no matter what life through at her always tried to remain positive and was always there as a mom/friend! Many of her children's friends considered her a 2nd mom because they knew they could come to her for anything!
