My mother fought a courageous battle this last year with remarkable strength and class, she did it with that beautiful smile she wore each and every day of her life, whether things were going well or things were not.
I would like to thank my Moms close friends, Jeanine, Joann and Carrol for continuing to include my mother during these difficult times, the Sunday football games at Lord Fletcher's, the trips shopping and the visits to her room, I know how difficult it was and I thank you for your patience, Love and support.
I would also like to thank the Angels at Presbyterian homes on Lake Minnetonka for the wonderful care and friendship they gave to Nila, she was treated like family, the staff continuously went out of there way to make Nila feel welcome and comfortable, Nila loved the staff as much as they loved her.
First and for most I would like to thank my beautiful wife Tracy who for 30 years was moms dearest freind, they had a relationship that most mother and daughters would envy, traveling together, shopping or just laying around the pool, I know Tracy will miss her greatly and I can't thank her enough for her patience and unconditional love.
I love you Mom and I will miss you..
