This was my aunt. She worked to make a difference in the lives of women, children, and animals. She loved life and respected every living thing. She was strong, independent, and full of love for her family. She had a heart for the fatherless, motherless, homeless. Thank you God for my aunt, Vanessa, Elaine Thrasher
