Wow, can't believe it has been a year! You are remembered and missed.

It will be one year on October 4th that you have gone to be an Angel and there has not been one day that I have not thought about you and have not missed you.

Oh how I miss you and miss our talks but I know that one day we will be together again and will be able to laugh like we use to and talk girl talk like we did. I love you "Pink Sista" and miss you with all...

Christine, I am so sorry about the loss of your mother. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Stormy

You were a brave soldier, an inspiration to all, and you will be missed by so many. I know you are in no pain now and that makes me rejoice. You lived life to the fullest. You were a shining example to all.
