My prayers go out to her boys and family. Aunt Babe was always loving and smiling. I remember her hugs as a child and how I mistook her for my mom and it made her laugh.

Babe's infectious happy spirit and amazing memory for her loved ones will be greatly missed. She showed my children such love and attention, and they loved her in return. We will cherish our memories with her until we see her again. We pray for all comfort possible to be upon John and the rest of the family at this time. We love you!
