    You were the best other mom a guy could want. For years you accepted me and always made me feel like I was one of your own. Your two sons are like brothers to me and we have the best memories. From Beebe Flea Market to dropping Ricky off in the kitchen floor drunk and running as fast as we could before you got out of the bed. You were fantastic and beautiful always. I miss every minute I spent as part of your family, and regret every minute that I missed. Though we’ve lost a mother, a friend, a confidant; heaven has gained a beautiful angel. Thank you for all the good times. With much love, your other son Jake.

      We were lucky, we both had 2 sets of wonderful parents. You have been a dear friend to the family since day one. Mom knew you were there the other day and it meant a lot to all of us brother. Thank you!!!
