My condolences cousins
I remember when she & her friend would come to the downtown transit office for their passes, so full of life & laughter. It was a treat to serve them.
She was the best second Mom a teenager could have wished for. She knit me slippers when I needed them and smacked me with one when I needed it... all in good fun, or course. My heart is with you. Treasured memories are yours forever.
