I will miss the laughter that we used to share. You always were this sweet, but take no prisoners type of woman. I really liked that about you. I will miss sitting under the carport at Gigi's house talking about the past and the present while you smoke your cigarettes and we laughed. You were 1 of the good 1's and I will forever remember you my friend. R.I.P. buddy. Mike
