Just speechless in so many ways. But alot of fun times and memories of you will live on in my heart forever. The funniest thing I can remember is when we lived across from you and you walked over to get Alexis. But you ask for laxative and I said what are you talking about it was her you have always called her that. I believe we laughed about that for years. And I loved you like my own flesh and blood give my momma a kiss for me. And may you Rest in Peace .Love ya
