I will always remember the love and kindness you gave me. I will miss you until I join you. I know where you are and you are at peace. I like to think of you reuniting with Michael , your sister and your mother. We will take care of Jerry. Yall's relationship novels should be written about. You were truly a blessing in mine and Macks life and I am so sad but so glad you are no longer suffering. Mack and I are here for your children too if they ever need us. Good bye my friend . I love you forever.

I will always remember her from my years on Beau Lane with the Durbins and how kind she always was. Let the memories of her amazing life bring you some comfort through this most difficult time.
