She was always positive and upbeat. She enjoyed bowling, crafting, and training the new puppy Indie. She really loved Indie her last days. She enjoyed music and concerts. She was a passionate metal head. She loved just spending time with her family and Kurt. Didn’t have to be doing anything, just being with us all made her happy.
