You will never know how my heart hurts because I will never be able to talk to you again. We had so much fun going out & laughing never a harsh word did we ever have. Dad talked about how he used to scare you. OMG. I told him Dad that scares her to this day.
I will never understand why you left us. I am thinking God needed an angel and he picked you. Fly High Baby Girl. My salt shaker disappeared, did you take it with you? I can't type anymore. Because I can't see through these tears. I will love you & will never forget you. God's Got This now.
Love forever,
Darlene & Mcpheron Family.

Sending thoughts and hugs to Russ and kids. I'm so sorry for your loss.
I will always have fond thoughts of bowling with her and the few times that Debbie and I went out to party.
