    I just can’t find the words…just going to miss you…you always were one of the sweetest people. Funny thing, the day before you passed, my daughter Halie was reading the messages written in my high school yearbook. When she got to yours, my heart sank for some reason (I know now why) but a smile came my face…because you were the same back then as you are today…making people laugh, letting them know you care and always encouraging! Your faith in God was prevalent and I can say that I will see you again. RIP my sweet friend…the only scars in Heaven are on the hands that hold you now 💗
