    you have left us to soon, but I know now you are at peace and with dad together once again and for all eternity. I am so thankful that you had a chance to be able to spend some time with your newest grand daughter Misha, as well as Jen and Mikie. I could tell the times you were around her you were so happy, and that was a good feeling for me to see. Mom I am going to miss you, you were always my rock.

    I love you,

    Mary Ann, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Your mother was a very warm and caring person. I will always remember the times I can over to your house and she always had freshly bakes cookies! Your mother touched many lives and she will be fondly remembered.
