    I will never forget your wittiness and your personality. You definitely always made us laugh and smile. Our late night rook games were always the highlight of my early teen years. We love you and will see you soon one day.

    New to America and without family you quickly became a wonderful neighbor and grandmother to our children. Please know that we have many fond memories of you throughout the years and that although you are in a better place now, you will be truly missed.
