gone, but never forgotten...

she was a crass woman at times, but she loved completely.
her laugh was loud and contagious.
her smile lit up her face.
she wore the reddest lipstick she could find.
she was a CNA.
she was a waitress.
she and my dad owned a dog grooming business.
she ran Port Henry Beach campsite for a summer.
she didn't start driving until she was in her 40's.
she had the BEST legs.
she loved Bingo.
she loved coffee. hmmmmm…the apple doesn't fall far ;)
we loved our 'cafe mocha moments.'
she loved her family the MOST.
and pina coladas and bailey's.
she wasn't a very good cook.
she loved books. so many books.
and puzzles. jigsaw. crossword. searchaword.
and cards.
she played mahjong. and bowled.
she yelled much. but hugged often.
