  1. She most definitely was a girly girl. She will definitely be missed, until that one fine day of rejoicing with her again in our beautiful heaven above. My heart is heavy knowing my son, her first grandson Tyler Bolinger is hurting she left so soon, but I know she’ll be with him every day to guide and watch over him until we all meet again. Love
