I loved her." Mom I love you; I miss you; you were always my best friend, love Larry. Sherrie says "I remember she was such a good mom; I was in Brownies and girl scouts, and she made me a skating skirt so I could learn to skate, she taught me many things." Dear mom in Heaven, I know you are out of pain now. I hope you and Tony are playing cards and watching the Chiefs play. You will be so missed by many, I will miss all your phone calls and messages (Rita pick up the phone, I need you right now). You always told me, you were going to live to be 100 years old and as stubborn as you were I figured you would too. I know where I got my stubbornness from, I love you with all my heart, Rita. Grandma, I love you and I will miss you, Love Aaron. My memories of grandma: her artistic skills, her delish chex mix recipe, her ham and beans and excellent fried chicken. I love you, Sarina. I enjoyed working for you and being able to see you smile and laugh and all our conversations, love Michelle. I love you great grandma.
