    I am so sorry that you are gone. You were way too young to go. You always thought about others, putting them first. I will remember laughing with you while you tried to get through Nick's homework ~ neither of us could figure it out. Or the way you loved your girls and grand baby. I can't believe you are gone and I will keep all of your children in my prayers. I will miss you so much!
