“We had so many good times. I will always remember the strong, fiercely independent fun loving woman I knew. You were such an inspiration of style, laughter, cooking, animals, and family. You loved to dance to the blues and make me laugh .
Too many challenges in life took you down a different path.
I will never forget how you changed my life ”
