I just want to say that I have loved this family for a life time. I have been close friends with Tracy Kirby and Kerwin Dula for many years and made life time memories with them and their family and loving them so much. But their Mom was a very precious sweet lady...mild and meek...never had a bad thing to say about anyone. Such a precious Mom and grandma and my friend...me and her sit and talk and cherished each one of our darkness secrets. Someone I trusted to do that with and her with me. My heart is broken over this sweet soul passing. But i know she is finally resting and is going to enter the kingdom of heaven to be with the rest of her family that has done gone on. And that blesses my heart and i will see her again and get to share more life with her. So save me a seat and i will see you again. I love you guys that is lefted behind to carry on her legacy. God bless all of you. I love you all.
