Rest in peace sweetheart. So glad you are now with the Angels and the loved ones that have gotten To heaven before you. One of my fondest memories is of you coming to Portsmith and walking into my front door and saying lets go play bingo. You won $500 and said that you shouldve left my butt at home. I laughed because we always split our winnings. A few games later I won the thousand dollar jackpot. Needless to say we were both very happy. I know you are up now playing bingo and spades with all Your loved ones in heaven. Junior said that he is praying for you and glad that you were now with the Angels and out of pain. We both loved you like a mother, Love staying with you and you will be missed tremendously. We love you and will see you in heaven. Love Deborah and Junior
