Every time I look outside, I'm gonna miss seeing you on the steps. We had many good times together that I'll never forget. No more pain my friend. With love, Sharon.

Rest sweetly in eternal peace my dear cousin. I'm so grateful we were able to say our goodbyes and give you hugs. You were like my older sister growing up and I will always cherish our childhood memories of time spent on the Cape. You loved to play the part of a tough chick but I know you had a heart of gold and cared deeply for those important to you. I will miss your smart and funny remarks but am thankful you are no longer suffering. Love you. Kath
