Mary ,
You were my mother in law,
my mother, and my friend.
I will always cherish the car rides we took and our late night casino runs.
Most of all, I will miss the way your mouth never stopped running from the time your butt got in my car until you got out!
Funny, how you were never to chatty to be the backseat driver though!
I don't know how I will fill the space my friend,
But I am happy for you.
You have been waiting to be with your love
Many blessings and Peace be with you
Diane
