Priscilla,hard to believe that I have known you most of my life. Since I was 12. I admire you for stepping into a family that at times was so chaotic. You stood your ground. You blended two families. Then you blended three. My family. I will always appreciate the way you loved mom. You were a very good friend to her. She needed that. You welcomed Adam into the family as one of your own. You were there for my girls. I will forever be grateful for the support you gave them. You will be truly...
