We are going to miss you so much! For 23 years, you have been excellent with sharing your children and grandchildren. I don't know anyone that would have been as gracious. I am forever appreciative for all our conversations both in person and on FB messenger. I have many good memories to reflect upon. Please give me the wisdom and strength to be there for Leanne and Robby to say the right words and to give them the advice you would give them, I can never ever fill their void but I promise you I will be there to remind them how much you love them and your memory will always be vivid in all our lives. You were an excellent Mom and Grandmother and will be forever loved and missed.
