    A guiding light with unconditional love, accepting you for who you are. NO MATTER WHO YOU WERE.
    I” am thankful for the many: times you stepped up in my life and cared for me as one of your own, when my own did not, making your home feel like my home. Showing up even when Speedy or Gina was not home welcoming me in, an hanging out, talking about all my life”s problems, never judging me, always leaving feeling a hundred times better about myself. I will never forget the times you saved me from my own bad choices, never shutting the door on me. All the things you did for Tyler and me. Most of all for the solid friendship I’ve had over all these years with your son an daughter. years can go by so fast but no matter how many do, they will always be family to me. I’m so very proud that you were apart of my life.
    YOU TRULY ARE THE BEST MOM, GRANDMA, AND FRIEND.
    I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU JOAN UNTIL I SEE YOU AGAIN.
    ALL MY LOVE, PAULA. (GOOFY)
