I cannot believe this is real and you are not around for me to pick up the phone and call you. Or be able to stop over after I drop Brayden off at school so you can spend some time with Carter and play the chicken for him. It jut doesn’t seem right that you are not here with us. I’m going to try and make your cheesecake for Christmas to keep the tradition going. I know it won’t be half as good but I need to do it to have a piece of you there even though I know you’ll be there with us. I’m going to miss you so much. Thank you for helping raise me and for helping to mold me into the woman and mother I am today. I will love and miss you always. You are now my guardian angel that will always be by my side and in my heart. Love you always. Your Granddaughter Ashley Ann ❤️❤️
Mike and Steve,

Condolences and prayers to you and the family.
