    I’m still in shock and disbelief that you are gone. We had gotten a whole lot closer over the last 2 years through my medical struggles cause you were a big help to try to advocate for me. You definitely were one of the most loving, caring happiest people I know that would give the shirt off your back. I promise to be there for my father, sister and brother as much as I can so you can rest in peace. To my father, sister cori n brother David we are here if you need us same to Amy of the other family. Tony says he will miss you Grandma Amy. Love Mindy, Lee n Tony
