    I am so sasdened to hear this. I will always remember her love for her family, her dogs and me, her crazy ex neighbor. We spent many hours playing in the dirt planting flowers and sharing stories of our lives. I will always remember your kindness. I know you are with your Mom and Dad now. I am so blessed to have had you as my friend.

    My dearest dearest friend of more than 50 years. You know how much I’m going to miss you. I loved your crazy self. I loved your strength. I’m so blessed to have shared so many good times with you and the kids. We pulled each other thru a lot of life’s messes and I’m so glad we had such a great friendship. Don’t shake your head at us from up there in heaven. I can just hear you saying “oh gawd” and rolling your eyes. Rest In Peace my friend
