It’s difficult to comprehend this loss, Moey, My Pokey. Since 7th grade we have had a long history, too many stories, good times, rough times. Your fierce strength in life is immeasurable to me, and everyone that loves you. If we wrote a book about your life, the things that would make many laugh and cry. There are many people that had a part in your journey here in earth, and each one has a glorious story to tell. To say I love you is not
Enough , the most wonderful memories I keep safe with me, until we meet again. I know you are with your Dad, and slithering around with Steve Ray, makes me smile. I will forever be your Gumby. Thank you Pokey for all the memories. Thank you for allowing my part in your journey on earth.
Thank you to your husband for taking such amazing care of you, he is a blessing.
