Dear Giles Family,
I had the pleasure of going to school with your mom and then also reconnecting with her in my position as Lakeland High School Counselor. Her love for her family was very evident! She beamed whenever she was talking about any of you! You were the light to her world!
Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
