  3. Babs I will never forget you and what you meant to me and what you meant to my mother. She always told me you were the best friend she ever had. When she passed it hurt my heart calling you to tell you she passed. I remember the two of you together laughing. Your smile will be forever in my mind. One of my favorite things about you was your sense of humor. My mother loved you with all of her heart and I will always love you with all my heart. I can’t even tell how much it met to me when you came to see me this past July. You made my whole Summer. I knew it might be the last time I saw you but I knew you were at peace. I won’t ever forget you. I love you forever and till next time I see you, you and my mother better be waiting for me. Love you always Yvonne
