  4. It’s hard to say goodbye to someone you have known since she was 6 years old. We had such goodtimes growing up and some sad times. Too lose her this soon is just heartbreaking to a lot of her friends. Every one who knew her as a friend knows that she was a friend for life and would do anything for you if possible.
    I love you “Red” and will always miss you. You took a part of me with you because I know that there will never be anyone else like you in my life!! If I know you as I do I know that you will be there to watch over your family more than you were able to in life. I will see you again when the time comes! LOVE YOU!!!!
