Dear Mom, I am not sure how I will spend my days without you. We shared so many memories in the years we lived together. Our times in Florida, by the pool or our many Olive Garden lunches. You were always fun and made me feel special. The one memory I laughed about the most was our Streeked Mountain short cut. You never let me take another short cut.

Our travels were many my loss is great but you left me an incredible group of siblings. I love you Mom have a peaceful journey home. Love Paula

Nana, you always had a special place for everyone. You truly believed that I got my long legs from you. It used to make me laugh to think. It was the only logical reason right. I will miss you dearly everyday as I know I will never get a woman quite as wonderful as you again in my life. Love Jenny
