May truly had a beautiful soul. She was a marvelous Servant of our Lord and exemplified her love for Christ through her good deeds and pure love towards others. May was dedicated to her family, near and far. She will be remembered best for her Godly aura, her simplistic elegance, her kind soul and abundant love.
