I am unable to come up with just one memory to share. That’s not even possible. You took me in 16 years ago, and never questioned me. You loved me unconditionally, you constantly reassured me I was a amazing mother and at times went out of your way to make sure I had everything I needed. I blessed you with 2 grandchildren who turned out to be your whole world, little did we know your time was so limited. We love you ol man, Papa, Jack. You will be missed by oh so many. We will live through your memories, your words and your love.
