    Terry I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother. She was really special and I know you loved her very much. Just saw this and I’m sorry for being so late. Wish I could have been there for you like you were there for me. Take care brother.

    Aunt Doris, I shall miss you very much. I’ll remember those 6 months we spent together a few years back. Although, rocky at times, I’ll cherish them always. I’ll never forget you were my first employer when I was just 17, you taught me a lot about the work force. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for taking me under your wing.
    I love you, and will miss you!

    Your niece, Susan❤️✝️❤️
