  2. Valarie I don’t have the words. I loved your Mama so very much. Y’all took me in and gave me a home. She was so good to me when she didn’t have to be. And she didn’t even kill us when she found out we had the condo key! So many memories. I find myself laughing through the tears thinking of all of the craziness we three shared! So much laughter. Her 100% “Weezer” sarcasm never ceased to make me laugh til I cried. She was so dead on about it, said the things we would only think! Lol! And talk about love…she loved you with every fiber in her soul! You were her “girla” and the source of her greatest pride and joy. Then came Andrew, Jordyn, she loved them insanely, along the way I think she may have even liked Trey a little. Lol. You better believe she is with your Dad now raising hell about something! And I bet Duffy that sneaky dog is still getting his ice cream! I’m so sorry for the loss of your Mother. If I close my eyes I can see her laughing with her eyes twinkling usually after delivering a zinger! Thank you for sharing her with me. I love you so much!
