Such a lot of great memories in what seems just a few short years (Almost 8)..............What great friends this family has been to me! So glad we have gotten to share many lunches, beach trips, Myranda's basic training graduation, Myranda's wedding & so much more. I absolutely love this family. And the fact that Sam gave us the sweetest family member, Myranda, only seals that love even more. Sam was always the laughter in the room anytime we were together. Beverly, Connor, & Myranda, know that I have been praying and am here for you!
