Cheese we have been a team for a very long time, we had our ups and downs but some how we always manage to get it together. I never thought you would be gone before me because I was much sicker than you, but you was right there by my side coaching me. Never in a million years did I ever think you would go before me. I will always love you Cheese until my end of time. We will meet again and our love will be stronger than ever. Sleep on my love until we see each other again. I will wear my Brown Skirt. "LOVE YA" Rosemary
