Looking at these pictures of you, your family and loved ones, I felt sad at the loss of your beautiful spirit. But as I continued scrolling down, I couldn't stay sad looking at your ever-present contagious smile and laughter, Memories of Special Olympics, People Incorporated, the PI shows, picnics. pool and parties at your home. But then you had so many friends that eventually Mom and Dad had to hire a hall to hold all of us who wanted share in celebrating your life's events. You may not be with us physically., but your smile, laughter and love will always be in our hearts.
Wendy, Jim, Jaime and family, and Gina you gave her the gift of a wonderful life. This is a most difficult time for you. I pray that time will somehow ease your pain. We love you all.
