    My second mom (Dee) was a very loving mother who was there and gave of herself to everyone at anytime. She never looked at you as not being her family. Her love for her family was unconditional. I will hold her in my heart forever. I loved having her as my second mother. Love you Dee.

    Fly high in that beautiful sky my Grandmother. I forever will love you I forever hold you in my heart. You was wonderful grandmother. I will cherish the time I spent with you. I learned a few from you. I will never forget your method of “don’t you dare smile” to make us smile. Life not fair and took you away so early. You had so much life left. I miss you my beautiful grandma. Take care of my daughter(brookelyn) I know you will. You never had a problem with children you had that in the bag. I will always love and miss you grandma. Thank you for being such a awesome grandma.

    Dee, my dear friend. Little did I know that my ad for a babysitting job would bring a 40-year friendship with you. You taught me so much about kids, and you taught me how to make your spaghetti! Then there was going to see Barry Manilow and reluctantly going out dancing. I will miss you forever. Love forever and always.
