Dear Friend,
You brought such joy and laughter to this world. You had and will forever remain so bright. This world will never be the same without you here. Since before we met in person at the food bank a few years ago, we instantly connected through hours and countless messages. Both sisters or Loretto and our sons being friend brought us even closer together.

Our thoughts and prayers will always be with your Family, esp Connor, Dan, and Ms. Gloria.

You are dearly missed and the path we all shall take is a little darker without your light and smile. Until the Lord brings us together again Dear Friend.
Forever with the Angels, Always in our hearts.

Tocaya. I loved that you called me that. You are a person who in a short time brought joy to my life. Having you as a friend is a great blessing, your smile will be what I will remember forever, your voice so sweet and how you encouraged us to move forward. I will miss your witticisms, your "I'm always late to the party", when you caught up with our talks. I miss you so much Tocaya. You have a special place in my heart, there you will stay forever. I love you very much friend, rest in peace next to God.

Georgette was a gift of love, joy, and generosity to many. She shared her time, gifts, and talents unselfishly. I will always remember her joyful smile and kind words the last time we spoke. To Daniel, Connor, and the family, I offer you prayers along with many, for peace during these days of separation and grief. May Georgette's spirit remain alive in us all and May God Bless you all.
