Vanessa was a woman who loved her family. She displayed her love for them by devoting herself to them and their needs. She was a homemaker: To her, that meant taking care of the obligations in front of her. No matter how little the family had she always made sure that there was a meal on the table. She always put the needs of her family above her own.
Vanessa loved her husband. After 45 years of marriage, she never wanted to be anywhere without him. He was an over the road truck driver and when he was shifting those gears she was always on his “RIGHT” side telling him how to drive. He was the love of her life and she wanted to spend every moment with him that she could.
Vanessa loved her grandchildren dearly. She always reminded them of how proud of them that she was. She talked about them to everyone that she met. She told them often that she loved them and every time she saw them she had a little token of some sort for them. Her walls and shelves are lined with pictures of her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. She cherished photographs and would display them with great pride.
Vanessa was a woman of prayer, if she said that she was praying for you, she did it. She would pray for anyone anywhere. She never met a stranger. If you came in contact with her you encountered grace. She always saw people through the lenses of goodness. She saw the positive attributes of others no matter how messy their lives were. She was an encourager. She had a way of knowing when others were hurting and she would make the necessary sacrifices to help make them feel better. She was a trusted friend to many. She was a person that you could confide in and tell your deepest secrets to.
Vanessa loved holidays, especially Christmas. Her idea of a wonderful Christmas did not come in a beautifully wrapped package with a fancy bow. Her idea of Christmas was being surrounded by her family, sharing laughter, and enjoying good food. When the family would come together she would entertain them with her stories where she would laugh hysterically. She would laugh so hard that she could not complete her own sentences. She was full of life that made you feel so loved and so special. She was a woman with a grand heart and a gentle touch. She was simply amazing.
