I miss you every second of every day Mom. I still want to go downstairs and see what you are up to. Sitting on the patio in the sun isnt the same without the little snacks you always managed to sneak off and make. What I wouldnt give to see you smiling and bringing out a tray of treats for an afternoon 'wisit'. Love forever...Allison

Selena & Allison,
I have so many happy memories living across from your mom in Lanigan. Her crazy sense of humor, great smile, a coffee always not too far away, her running late in the morning and making Selena crazy because of it and of course her being a loving mother and friend. XOOX
