    Osmosis!!! A word I never new until I met you. I’m smiling right now, as I remember to a T, the time and day of week at Dot Center PO. You are flying with Angel’s right now. I took your passing hard, even though it’s been years. That’s how much you touched my life. Be free my friend. And have one on me.

    So many memories. The outrageous great laugh. The twinkle in the eye. The quick witted clever response. Her ability to make everyone smile. The beers. We will miss her. But we take solace in knowing that she is looking down on us saying “Behave yourself”
