Pansy was an avid lover of Jesus since young adulthood. She was a prayer warrior and intercessor who had faith in her Redeemer. She is now gone to be with her Forever Love. She leaves behind a family who loves her and has eternal hope in meeting her again in her heavenly home. Above all else she passed on to her family a love for each other as a family and a passion for loving others and encouraging people to love her heavenly Father.
