First time I met you was with Shirley, in your home in Roanoke and Sarah and Kristi were little. I remember Sarah hiding behind you with a pacifier in her mouth. Sweetest little ones. And you invited me in with open arms, a big beautiful smile and the best custard filled dessert turnover. From then on we were friends. You always made me and my family feel special and I always loved talking to you when I would go in DQ. You always asked what I was doing and how my family was doing. You will be missed terribly I know, because you were the real deal. You left 2 strong beautiful women just like you. Will see you soon my friend, either way God decides to take me home. Love knowing that you are with your loved ones, and most of all Jesus!
