You will be greatly missed!

My thoughts are with the family, at this sad time.

I Fleurette, will never forget your kindness to Dylan. I will always remember, the time Dylan brought hand instruments, to your house with a boom box and made us all, play along to Michael Jackson music, in your living room.
