My mom loved Wyoming, the prairie and her heart was as big and as wide open as both.

She was a caregiver for Carroll Riggs for the last six years of her life and gave everything she had to making sure he was taken care of respectfully and as lovingly as she would have wanted in her final years.

The say there is karma and after her passing, I will say it truly is so.

The people of Riverton, Davis Funeral Home, Pastor Doug Hill, and the kind ladies of the VFW could not have shown more empathy and compassion.

Under such unfortunate circumstances, I had the opportunity to meet many extremely upstanding, kind, and loving people.

Thank you Riverton for making my moms last 20 years her best.
