You are such a wonderful positive person in my life. I first met you through my friends Carla and Nancy, then became the kid that never went home. I remember enchilada Friday nights, my first introduction to enchiladas and tacos. Mmmmm!!!!! Thank you for all the wonderful memories and accepting me as just another kid in the house.
I celebrate that you went home to the Lord To be reunited with family members there.
I think of you with love and I am thankful you love so deeply stray dogs and kids.
Bless those that will miss you and my God heal their hearts. Rest sweet lady.
