May fond memories of your mother bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these before she passed away. I will forever remember the many times visiting you and being made to feel right at home.

From your upstairs bedroom our laughter could be heard throughout the house. Your father got a kick out of teasing us by asking if we were talking about boys. We were and school, classes, upcoming parties and all the other things teenage girls talk about.

I loved both your mom and dad. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family.
