Dicky, Butch, Tootles, Chucky, and Phillip: I was so sorry to hear about your dad (and mom). Both your parents were always so sweet to me. Your dad was always smiling and the one thing I remember most is how much he adored your mom. He was a kind man and I know you will miss him. My thoughts are with you and your families.

Pappy, Words can't describe how much you will be missed. I will always remember the times you sang to me, the times we played soccer in the nursing home, the times you held my hand, the times you told me how pretty I was and proud you were of me was.I will always be that little girl that you called pebbles because of the pony on top of my head, I just have a little more hair now. I know you are happy with Grandma. I bet she's giving you a hard time as we speak. You will be missed by many but we are all so glad you are no longer suffering and I know I can sleep better knowing I have another angel looking down on me. I love you so much and will see you again.
~love your great granddaughter Kayla (AKA: Pebbles)
