I can't believe you're gone. We just talked in April. You are a very dear friend, along with your sister, Shirley, starting in high school. Don and I will miss our almost annual visits while traveling north from South Carolina to visit family and friends. Such a kind person that always had a smile and a beautiful laugh. You loved your children with all your heart. Conversations always included hearing what was going on in their lives; her "my Christina", "my Tina", my "David" my Dave". Missing you always.
