She left her mark in the North Country through her legacy. A strong, loving and generous woman is how she will be remembered. Although not her biological daughter, she was always gracious and allowed me to call her mom. I will miss her dearly as I ponder on her infectious smile. Stone family, please know you are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
Much Love,
Tammy Arquette
