    Mom, I love you and miss you very much! I was so blessed to get to share both Thanksgiving and Christmas with you last year and will always cherish our nightly dinners and games of Yahtzee and Uno! Rest in Peace knowing that your Yahtzee record of over 700 and something will probably stand for eternity. I’ll always take care of your daughter Sue, until death do us apart and I’ll always pray for you! Love, your son in-law Greg.
