Thank you for playing such a huge roll in my life as a kid and teenager. From the AVON, to the trips to the movies and the State Fair. You stepped in for my mother when she was too sick or in too much pain to spend time with me outside of the house and for that I will always remember and cherish every sing memory we have created together!! Please tell your crazy sister that I love and miss her! 😂. Rest well!! ❤️
