I miss your smile in the mornings when I would go to get my morning drink at CEO.
You were usually the first person I I would see in the morning and talk with. You always had a smile on your face and something nice to say. When I was sick with Cancer you gave me encouragement and showed your kindness.
I will always remember you as we share the same birthday. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
