Well sis, sometimes I'd complain about all the phone calls, but I really miss talking to you and sharing and laughing about all our stories.I'm sure the Drs. didn't appreciate you telling them you had to discuss what they wanted to do with me. What a lifetime of memories and laughs we had. Gary &wade she cared about you . She's smiling that Vinney is with you Gary. God bless you and comfort you.
