Cheryl and Mike

I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember all the fun times our families had together. Your mom’s in heaven now with your dad and sister.



To my Godmother who faithfully never forgot me. Who sent me cards on my Birthday, or just a card when I need it.
Friendship between women can take different forms. It can run like a river, quietly and sustainingly through life; it can be an intermittent, sometime thing; or it can explode like a meteor, aftering the atmosphere so that nothing ever feels or looks the same again. By Molly Haskell
You will be missed my friend and always be in my thoughts I will miss you.

The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand,
The sun goes down but gentle warmth still lingers on the land,
The music stops and yet it echoes on in sweet refrains…
For every joy that passes,something beautiful remains
