We ALL loved that laugh; how your face would turn beet red, and how you'd shake in amusement with tears coming from the corner of your eyes. You were absolutely special in so many ways; I'm going to miss you forever. You will always live on inside of me, in how I choose to live my life and raise my daughters, and even in the "little things" that made you who you were; I'll always think of you when I drink a can of Pepsi, read a good book, love my cats, when I go shopping at the mall, eat at a Long John Silver or Dairy Queen, and even when I am scared to do something in life, I will think of your words for comfort, "when it's your time, it's your time." You may be gone from this world, but you always will be in my heart. I'm going to LOVE YOU until the muddy water of the Ohio River runs dry--and even way after that.

I love you "Mal-Mal!"
