Dear Family & Friends,
I want to thank my beloved children, my extended family, and wonderful friends for the tremendous outpouring of love and support you have always shown me. I have been overwhelmed by your kindness and love.
I have been so blessed to have had the love of my three amazing, smart, funny, and spiritual children, Kim, Jan and Ron and former beautiful daughter-in-law Monica. All of which have been such beautiful souls. I want to thank them for their love and support throughout my life, and for giving me the greatest gifts ever, my treasured grandchildren! They have been like shining stars in my life, and I loved every single minute spent with them. They were surely one of the greatest joys in my life.
I give thanks to my sweet sister Margie, who has always been so kind, generous, giving, caring and funny. Thank you, Margie.
A thank you to my loving, wonderful extended family, my nieces, and nephews. Always here with a funny joke or a good story. And last but certainly not least, my extra special, wonderful, fabulous friends! They have been my divine playmates. You filled my life with great times, fun, and adventures.
A “special shout-out” to Gwen, who has helped, and taken care of me in a hundred different ways. Life would have been much tougher without her in it, and never as good. I have been blessed with all my friendships, and I thank you all for coming on this journey with me. Thanks for all the memories. I love you all.
