Your were my best friend. I will miss you everyday. We traveled the world together and shared so many incredible adventures. I treasure every moment and every memory. I remember our race to the ship in Stockholm just as it was ready to take off and me making you go to the Bayeur Tapestries because I knew we could get in! Love you always 💜💜💜😻😻. Sheri
