My heart is full of sadness at the loss of my dear friend and classmate. She was always so full of life and always remembered my birthday!! She loved her trips to CA, NV, with Walter and loved her second home in FL. God needed another Angel and I hope she and my sisters get together, tell stories and raise holy heck until I get there. I want to extend my condolences and love to my friend Walter and to all the family.
