    Charlie, Anthony and family,

    Jewell (Mom)’s Fire and passion for life will be sorely missed. She lived on her own terms and made no excuses for her beliefs! She was an artist with a paint brush, carving knife or a Tomahawk!! Truly part of the “Greatest Generation” and the likes of which we may not see again! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Rest in peace Jewell
