After returning to Brooksville, she resided at the Heartland of Brooksville Nursing Manor. There she made many friends and they all loved her. During her stay, she prayed for many, convinced some and even help others to see it God’s way. She also made sure that everyone knew that she was a child of God and if you didn’t want to hear the truth, don’t ask any questions; for you surely would receive the butt naked truth.
