My sweet sweet Doys! You were like another mother when I first came to Alaska with a baby in tow in 1993. Working with you doing cleaning jobs was always a joy,& even though nights we had tequila nights. You were kind & loving to me over the years & even when I moved away in 2002 we always stayed in touch. Before your surgery you were telling me about your travels to the lower 48 and visiting family and friends and how much fun you had. I’m so glad you were able to do this trip before your heart surgery. We were supposed to meet in Oregon but with the weather & start of pandemic 2020 it prevented us from meeting up and that made me super sad. Especially now that we will never get that chance. My heart broke when I got notified from Gary that you had passed & I think of you often. I saved your voicemail from the month before & when I need a pick up just listening to it makes will make me smile. I love you my friend! Till we meet again one day. Rest easy my dear friend!! Love you!!
