To the woman who was a mother to me in every way. I have been in the family for more than 50 years and cherish all the wonderful memories I have had with her. I lost my mom when I was 20 years old and she was there for me everyday after. I loved her with all my heart and she gave me the most precious gift of all, her son , my best friend, to love and cherish. I will miss you every day of my life. My prayers are with Mike, Jenny and Earl. Know that you can always count on me. I love you all. Janice
