I will surely miss your morning texts, afternoon Jeopardy game, going out to lunch, visiting wineries and listening to music. I will miss our garden therapy and shopping therapy. We had so much fun kayaking, bicycling and walking, just spending time together and talking. We had a blast on girls days out and witches nights out. I will miss you terribly Helen. Rest in heavenly peace. I hope to see you on the other side.
