When I was 8 years old and found out I was adopted, you told me not to feel bad, that I was special, because I was chosen….You and Dad gave me so much, in what you did, and didn't do, what you said and didn't say. You gave me my foundation, my faith, safety, security, family and tradition. In other words, you gave me everything. So now I know…. I am special, BECAUSE I was chosen by you and Dad. Forever in my heart and life,
Give Dad a kiss for me

To a wonderful woman who created a wonderful family with Uncle "Howie". To Shirley and Jean, there is nothing like the love of your Mom. She worked hard to get you and loved you beyond her words. Let the sparkle in her eyes every time she saw you, bring you peace and be your guiding light.
