You were loved and respected by people far and wide – friends, family, co-workers, students, and many others. I love you dearly, and have for the 38 years I was blessed to call you friend. Thank you for all the laughs, the Nintendo weekends, the tacos and Grandma Lucy chocolate cake. Thank you for being an integral part of my daughter’s life. We raised dogs together, hosted kick-ass parties, went whale watching, had bunking parties, enjoyed the Y-Motel and it’s bounty, wrote poetry and what we deemed deep thoughts on pizza boxes, and we LAUGHED. And laughed. Thank you for making me part of your family and for being honest, loyal, and always up for fun. Oh, and I found the dried apricots you had to try and torture me. I am eating them and CIndy will have to enjoy. I LOVE YOU and will miss you always. Until we meet again…….Twuzzy
