    our hearts.

    Paige you will be missed so much by so many. I wish we had more time together in person in recent years, but I’m happy we kept in contact regardless. I’ll miss your advice and miss you coming to me for quick petty comebacks and miss your willingness to be you, no matter what, and I’ll especially miss your silliness. Thank you so much for always being the quirky, sarcastic, huge hearted girl you always were. I’m just so grateful I had you in my life for so many years, and I will truly cherish the memories I made with you.
    And to Gloria and Darryl, I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you.

  23. Jeffrey Wareham on January 31, 2020 at 5:56 pm

    Hoping you are able to find peace.
