You will definately be missed. I have 3 favorite memories of you: #1) when i was little you had me convinced thhadyoure thumb and forefinger, when put in the shape of a gun, could shoot water at me. Turns out that you were "gleeking"! Gross! Lol. #2) you had a tshirt airbrushed in bright colors that said "want some" on the front and "come get you some" on theback. I loved that shirt and you would let me wear it when i went out .on the weekends. #3) Last but NOT least, you turned me on to the EAGLES! You let me borrow your cassettes of them. I couldnt get enough! These memories will live with me forever and i thank u for each and every one! Watch over us and give Nanny a kiss for me! Love u!
