    I am so sorry for the lose of a very special friend and mother.
    Always the life of the party.
    We met in 1969 and we remained friends for all these years.
    Through the good times and bad.
    My heart goes out to her family and friends.
    She will be greatly missed.
    May you find comfort and peace in your memories
    that you hold in your Hearts.
    Love you always.
    Linda Ferraiuolo

    We always had the best times ... even when things weren't good, we found something to laugh at - usually ourselves. You'll always be my driver on the 'Hotmess Express. See you on the other side...xo
