Aunty Hwa you were a part of our family, and will be missed.

Hwa was a longtime, very dear friend to our Mom Corine D. Seward. They were part of a group that attended church together, shared meals, and played lots of cards. They continued some of these activities when they both moved into Good Samaritan. May Fwa rest in peace, O. Russell and Rudy Ray Seward
