Will miss you so much! To the kindest person I know, biggest heart ever and always smiling no matter what. I learned from you, loved you and enjoyed our letters, cards and calls over the years. You are now with little Eddie, the love of my life, and all together now. Will miss you dearly and huge emptiness in my heart.

Loved you very much Auntie Teen and will miss you forever. Fly pain free now with Uncle Ebbie and Eddie. There is comfort in knowing you are all three together now. Watch over Julianne from up there and we will watch over her from here until we are all together again.
Love you,
Sandy
