16 years ago you welcomed me into the family. I will never forget the love, laughter, tears and long talks we had. Thank you for loving me. Jeremiah always looked forward to going to Grandma and Grandpa's house. I'll never forget the day you laughed so hard at Jeremiah when he went for a swim in the pool. He was horrified of the big blue scary pool cleaner . We love you. I'm so glad we got a chance to speak to you and tell you we love you. Words will never Express what you truly meant to us. Thank you Lord for letting us borrow her for awhile. S.I.P
Love Always and Forever
Bryan, Demi and Jeremiah Pettett.
Playing Bridge will never be the same without you!
