I will miss our special visits together, as well as seeing your face light up and hearing you say “Oh Boy” when we showed up with one of your favorite goodies. Especially eating cheeseburgers and a Pepsi or Georges Almond chicken, without the gravy or almonds of course !!! We will miss you bunches. Glad that you will no longer have to suffer and give Uncle Ed a big hug for us!!! As well as the rest of the family. Thanks for sharing your love with us. Love you forever. Darrell and Tracey.
