To Judy and Arlene,

Your Mom was my guidepost of a life well lived. she was funny, gregarious, a joy to be around and a goal for all those who say "old age" is a waste. she showed ALL that even after reaching the golden age of 100 she could be involved; a loving mother and a great friend.
She amazed me all the time with her humor and good sense.
Everyone will miss the "little lady" forever.....never as much as her 2 daughters who were her "best" friends...God bless you both!
Love Jackie, Angel Tommy, Darlene, Dawn, Danielle, Sue and all of our family
