To My Sweet Niece
I will miss your beautiful smile, kind words, caring thoughts, and nice things you always did for others.
You never missed calling me on a holiday or just to talk because family was always important to you especially your children.
You were a bright star to me and I always felt connected to you. I will always carry you in my heart. Love Aunt Marge

Tracy has always showed me so much Love. She always told me she wished me and Marissa would have stayed together and gave her a grandchild. I would have been honored to do this for her. Thank you Tracy for always being a solid for me in a very iffy world. I will always hold you and Marissa in my heart. I love you
