  • I don’t know how to say goodbye to such an amazing and loving woman. My heart is so sad at the thought of you being gone. I don’t have a lot of great childhood memories from my home. However, every great memory I do have was with you and your family. You were the ONLY adult in my life that knew me. Really knew me and still loved me inspite of me. Which we all know was not easy. I loved how you always welcomed me no matter what. Thank you for showing a not so good kid what being loved felt like. I’m so thankful for your love and friendship. I’m so thankful I was able to spend some time with you and Lorrie when you came to Texas. I love you. I’m not going to say goodbye cause I truly couldn’t bare it. So I’ll just say I’ll see you again in heaven. You will be missed terribly.
