My OG!! What a blessing you have been to me as well as my family. Your quick wit and the love you showed us meant so much. Words can’t describe how much you will be missed. I have so many fun memories with you that I will never forget. I thank God for the time we had together. My sidekick Mia (as you called her)will miss you terribly she enjoyed talking to you about cross country and school. And Troy will miss you too!! Until we meet again I LOVE YOU BACK!!

To the family: Thank you for allowing me to care for Mom. You were blessed to have her as your mother. What an amazing woman she was. You all will be in our thoughts and prayers in the days to come.
