Our Sincere Condolences
I will miss you and love you always.
Your oldest daughter Susan was my best friend. I remember how hard you worked, how much you sacrificed. I remember hanging out your house and all the kids and I loved it. I loved the laughter, the yelling , the noise of siblings arguing and laughing and running everywhere. I loved the chaos. You always remembered me. You always treated me kindly. I just sent you a Christmas card. The last one. I’m glad you had fo many people your children, your grandchildren and their children to love and be loved by. I hope they all know, I’m sure they do, how truly special you are. Give Susie my love. And tell God I say hello. Alexis
