Dear sweet sister...my heart aches to know our visits on earth will be no more...talking for hours on the phone and laughing as we recalled the good old days as kids. I knew nothing about bridge and you knew little about cooking but we shared common interests in our children, grandchildren, critters, dogs/cats, sports, and gardening! I am so glad you returned to your passion of bridge after years of caring for Mother and Sharon. Your happiness in life was to make someone else's life happy. Sharp mind and quick wit were always there and many people were blessed by knowing you. Your fur babies, Max, Sam and Honey will miss "mama"..they loved you dearly. Family and friends will remember you with loving memories and miss you. I know you'll be joining a great group of Razorback fans..Benny, Bill, Mother, Daddy and Sharon. Until we meet again you remain in my heart with loving memories. Love you, Carol
