My mother and my best friend, I can't put into words how much I loved her and how much she has meant to me my whole life. Not a day will go by that she won't be on my mind and I will speak her name. Thru the good times and the bad we were always there for one another. A beautiful person inside and out. She taught me everything I know about life, about right from wrong, about being a good man, about being a good person, the values of hard work, and not giving up. I owe her everything for if not for her guidance I would not be the man I became. I love you Momma, my world has become a bit darker without you in it, but I know one day that will pass and I will be left with just the good memories of all the great times we had together. We will be together again, I will do my best to make you proud until that time comes.

My beloved Sister. I will miss you beyond anything I could imagine. It was just the two of us. My best friend . My mentor. My heart. We laughed, we cried , always knowing what each other was thinking. I will miss the talks we had all hours of the night. Watching TV on the phone 3,000 miles apart. I miss you and wish Heaven had visiting hours so I could see you sometime. With Love, Pats
