I enjoyed your friendship after my father passed away and I phoned you with the sad news. You welcomed me into your heart and constantly asked how the Vosses were doing. You have a wonderful family who will miss you dearly. I assume your ashes are on the bay. I am grateful you spent some time on the beach with us when Courtney and Theresa go swept off their feet by the wave. Thank you for being an aunt to us. Rest in peace.
