The few condolences is that you are in a better place than us and we have the honor of making memories with your incredible boys - Larry and Kenneth. Boys your Mom was super fun. She was loyal and very protective. Loved how she took in anyone in need. Miss Congeniality, not sure I ever known someone who didn't like her, except me when we bumped heads?. I was her "baby" sister so we just called each other "Baby" unless I made her mad she would call me Higinia or Jeannie. She was my best friend, my maid of honor, my hero in so many ways. Tio Todd and I are here for you and honored to build memories for the rest of our lives. We love you and will miss her terribly.???
