It won't be the same without you here, you will always be a thought on my mind everyday. So many memories, always there when I needed you to cheer me up when I was having a bad day.

She always kept me laughing. I can’t remember who else was with us at the old HS and we skipped class and went to the store up from Dave Lee’s house. We were hurrying across the street from the store and Chic got hit by a car. Being the courageous lot, we took off and left Chic in the street. She is with good friends now. Maybe the next time I see her she will forgive me for saying it was ok to cross.
Tracey, I shared your mom’s obituary on my Charleroi class of 66 page & the above memory was shared there by Paul Doyle
