    I want to say thank you for everything. Thank you for being at every baby shower. Every wedding. Every get together. All the holiday world trips. All the school classroom parties you always came with pop and goodie bags. Thank you for being the one to rescue me from drowning in the wave pool. For being there the day I had my first car accident and driving me home. I wish I had been closer to home and made more family time. I took advantage and the last hug I got from you was July 3rd and I’m so sorry I wasn’t there more often we love you!!!
