You were one of the most wonderful, caring, funny, and loving people I've ever met. I loved every single morning I was blessed with the opportunity to care for you. I loved talking to you for hours over coffee and laughing about getting old, brownie, and how much you loved to spend time with your family. I've missed you so much since I moved away and think about you so often. I hope you are enjoying being reunited with Charles and Sandra, like we all do now, they've missed you so much.Thank you for the laughs, the coffee, and so, so, so, so very much pie.
