It so hard to believe your gone. I just talked to you at Ryleigh's birthday party Saturday the 27th. You were such a loving kind woman who I will miss tremendously. I will miss your bright smile and our conversations we always had when you visited Tamara and Christien's home in Shawnee. Although you were my daughter in law Tamara's grandmother and we were not blood related you are very much a part of my family and I love you just the same.  You will get to meet my mom and dad and son TJ. They are waiting for you in Heaven. I love you mee maw.
