Last we spoke was the day before Thanksgiving. She was a beautiful friend, mother, grandmother, wife. She was "everybody's" best friend. She had unending patience, always happy, always a solution to any problem. I get the urge to call her, knowing she's not here. I miss her so much. We talked of death..but never expected it so soon. She had so much to give...her intelligence, wit...she had a heart of gold...I miss you my friend soo very much...save me a place with you if they accept polocks up there....:)Tell my mom and Linda hello for me....and your father....luv u--miss u--R.I.P.
