I’ll miss my birthday girl. Sharing a birthday with someone is special. Even though we didn’t talk every birthday I always thought of her. She and chuck were such big influences on my life and those memories will always remain. She taught me that enjoying life was in the little things like family, hawley lake, smores, ice tea, red hot jello, a wooden spoon, keeping a very clean house and raising four of the greatest cousins I know. I’ll miss her and think of her every 8th of June as time goes by. Thanks for everything you did for me love Chas
