  6. I can’t believe you aren’t here! You always made me laugh no matter what. Thank you for your wisdom, sweetness and probably one of the nicest friends I’ve had.. Wink baby as you used to say to me. Now you can have all the fun you want on the other side and no living in a nursing facility. I love you and I’ll join you one day where we can laugh all day.
