Never take life for granted
Never in a million years did I think that Labor day 2020 would be the last time I would have a burger with you and Martha
I love you and know that you're in each other's arms surrounded by uncle Hank and all the others that have gone on ahead

Aunt Zelma played Mildred, when our daughter Maria was born
They had planned a baby shower for me and I went into labor that morning
The shower was at her house and I told her go ahead and open the gifts for me. She had so much fun
I will miss you terribly going to Arizona will not be the same

I will cherish the times I got to visit with Aunt Zelma. I will always remember how she told me every time I come home Trina you have a different house, and she just laughed. Love her so much. I know she is rejoicing in Heaven reunited with her loved ones that were there to greet her. Praying for you Michael and Bill.
