So many great memories. You will be missed by many.
I have been very lucky in my life. I had 2 families for 40 yrs. The Anderson family unofficial adopted me when I was 13. Not many can say they have had that. I have more memories than i can mention. Mom never judged me only cared and loved me. 1 of the highlights of my life is our trip to Vegas it was a blast. I will miss her more than words can say. I Love you mom
