Not a single bad word can be said about Twila. She lived every day to its fullest. Twila raised her daughters using her whole heart. They were her entire world. Anyone to know Twila could say that she was extremely big in her faith. Everyone who was ever around her was blessed by her presence. Her life was devoted to her family and church. Twila acted as the children's music director at her church even before her oldest daughter was born. While around her, you almost had to laugh. She loved to make anyone smile. The loving wife, friend and mother to two is finally home and soaring with the angels. Twila left an amazing mark on this world and anyone to know and love her knows that she will be forever loved and missed. Fly high, Mom. See you again someday.
