I remember I was always trying to take care of you guide and protect you in the right direction.We had some really hard times but also had some good times. You were beautiful, kind, and thoughtful.You would give your last dollar away if someone was needing help.You loved dogs from a early age .We always had a yard full of dogs.Every time someone would drop off their dog you would beg mom to keep it.We had to go searching all day in the woods to find some puppies that took off.We had a good time going roller skating then we learned how to roller blade you were the daredevil going down big hills for a challenge. I would always walk down them.We had a good time trying to teach mom how to ride a bike. I could go on and on but I will end this with a broken heart my little sister you will never be forgotten. Thank you for being a great sister.

We are thinking of your family and all the friends you had thru the years.

My earliest memories as a child were of overnight stays with Grandma, Vicki, Terri and Jeanie. We would listen to 45's at night and run around Crooksville during the day. One of my favorite things to do was go to the ice cream stand for a cherry Coke. As I got older I loved hanging out with her talking about music and as we got older still I would come home on leave or between jobs and visit her and the family. I loved her dearly and sometimes she felt more like an older sister than my aunt.

Love you all and I'm thinking of you.

I have some good memories of our childhood! You were the youngest! We the siblings all thought you was so pretty. And I see a little toddler peddling around on your little tricycle.We drifted away from one another has life gets in the way. But I know I loved you,my siblings! You will always be in my heart!
