Alyne was like a mother to me for 13 years, and the strongest person I have ever known. She outlived her six children, her husband, all of her siblings, and cared for her grandchildren as if they were her own. She also cared for her mother and all of her brothers and sisters when they were in their final years. She was indeed a healer to her family and animals! She will always have a place in my heart.
