They will lat you to reat,but you know what they say God only takes the best. everything happens for a reason even if we may not agree just promise to look after us and if you can save a spot up there for me the thought of never seeing you again brings tears to my eyes and even more so because all of this Was such a surprise but we should never question what God has planned sometimes it’s not meant for us to understand so as we sit here and mourn the loss of a best friend we have to keep telling ourselves that we will meet again

Kelly,, Michael and Tim I found out about your mother’s passing while I was visiting my family during the holidays. It was a shock and flood of memories of Aunt Mary and Uncle Bud came rushing in. Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.

I just like to say thank you for being in my life and beside me all these years, I couldn’t have ask for such a best friend like you. I will miss terribly each and everyday. You had a heart of gold and such a caring person, you have touch so many hearts. I still can’t believe I will never see or hear your voice again. I will miss you my dear friend. I know you are now laying in Bud’s arms where you want to be with the biggest smile on your face. To Mary’s children & family my deepest condolences for your loss. Please watch over us until we meet again. Every time I think of you the tears come running down my face. Love you and will miss you.
