    A beautiful obit on Mabel. My sympathy to all the family. Mabel was an extrordinary lady. She was very intelligent, a kind and giving person. I know she is looking down on all of us now and I am sure the Golden Gates opened wide to welcome her in. She was devoted to her family and her church, a deeply religious woman. She is with all her relatives and friends now, including my husband, Vince, who loved her dearly. As I am writing this comment, I am thinking about all the occasions I stopped at her house to pick up Shaklee vitamins; she was definitely “The Shaklee Lady” and she would lecture me on how important it was to take Shaklee and I listened, ( I still buy
    Shaklee). Mabel, until we meet again, “May God Hold You In The Hollow Of His Hand”.
