She couldn’t get enough of the ID Channel, always watching her favorite shows: True Crime, the different CSIs, and Almost Got Away With It. But her favorite thing in the world was her family. She loved spending time with her siblings and her daughters, spoiling her grandchildren, and taking care of her cats.
