Phyllis, my best friend for over 80 years. I will never forget you. I have so many memories of our years together as our kids were growing up.
We were there for each other through the good times and bad times. I know you are at peace now with the ones that was the best part of your life.
I love you so much my friend. RIP

Mom, that's what you are to me since I lost my own mom so many years ago. You welcomed me and loved me like I was one of your own. I love you so much and will miss feeling safe when I was with you. I promise I will look after Karen and Lisa and the grands. Thank you. Love you forever 💜
