  1. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies for your loss. It is an honor to serve your family.

  2. My longtime and very best friend ever, your home going was way too soon. We still had a lot of lunches to share and movies to see. No one will ever sing Happy Birthday to me the way you did. I don’t know if the heavenly angels will let you join their choir, but then again up there you may have perfect pitch. I will never stop loving you and missing you. My sincere condolences to your entire family.

    Your BFF

  10. Being a brother-in-law to Deanna has been a blessing. I never get waited on as I do when I am visiting them in Avondale.
    I kid her on how special I am that she always had coffee ready to go for me in the morning (I wake up at 3:00 AM). You have to be careful what you think out loud, she will get it for you.

    I will miss her always.
