Oh so many stories and great memories.
She was the best person who took care of my youngest daughter. Lots of coffee and brownie batter staying up late just talking. Gonna miss our phone calls to catch me up on what crazy stuff you have been up too. Much love to a friend that can never be replaced.

May God grant everyone comfort and peace during this difficult time. We love you always, peace Lady Johnetta
