Lori ,
You where such an amazing person. I want to thank you for you wonderful things you did for me the past 7 months I got to work with you . To coming every week to my office and helping me with the clothes closet to teaching me how to keep everything clean and organized. To giving me the best advice to always remain positive to sitting down with me and having the best girl talks with me to making me laugh . I will miss you very much . You will always be in my heart .

Love ,

Dearest friend how I miss our everyday talks on the phone and your silly laugh. And the silly names we would give each other no day goes by that I don't think of you.

You will forever be in my heart
Sincerely Paloma (aka Palamalama)
Love you, sis...

Kaleb my deepest sympathy on behalf of your Mom.
Thanks for all the help you gave me, getting me upstairs with my groceries. You were so obedient to Mom. I wish I was there for you now. My thoughts and prayers are with you, sorry i'm so far away. May her soul R.I.P.
Love Germaine.
