You were always there for my mom and when she needed you. You were also there for me too. You were a beautiful person inside and out. You were there for every special occasion and I will never forget. The trips when you drove me, my mom and grandma to Philly and Newark university hospital when I was sick. I will always remember you.

Here is a poem I wrote about my friend in 1996.
Gracious lady you came my way. I don’t remember exactly the day. Like princess Grace a royal crown, graciousness abound. A smile you give to all you meet. Helping hands so discreet. Gracious lady I’m glad we met. You left an impression I won’t forget. I sure going to miss my loving great friend. I Love you.
