After our mother past Dad had Maggie to raise.
Often he would want to send sis to someone so he could go off and die.
Once he met Gail he wanted to live again.
She saved his life.

Belinda, Billy, Wendy & myself have so many wonderful memories that stand out for us. The times we went to Six Flags every summer, holidays, our trips to the convenience store to get our candy and soda, our road trips to Ohio to see family. The one thing I think we will always remember is her smile and her contagious laugh. We will miss hearing her laugh!

We love you mom! You will always be in our hearts and minds!❤️

How do you begin to share memories of someone so loving and kind to everyone she meets. That's who my sister was. Being the youngest of 6 she was always full of smiles and lots of laughter. No matter what the day held she would always make the best of what was lying ahead. Growing up we had lots of fun together along with many nieces, nephews and cousins. Even though living with Huntington's disease for many years she never gave up.
Our fond memories will live on forever. I smile now along with tears for all the joy she brought to me . She is in heaven now rejoicing with many love ones.
I love you Sis.

Heaven shines a little brighter now since the good Lord has called another angel home.
Yet it always leaves our hearts feeling lost and forever broken; distant memories become treasured gold.

I know too well that simple words cannot ease the pain of losing a parent... I pray God comforts your grief. I pray God fills each of you with happy memories of your childhood to share together. And when you are ready, I pray your dreams are filled with your mother's healing hugs and kisses...

She was a wonderful woman, a cherished friend and will forever be missed!!!
