    I’ll like you for ever,
    I’ll love you for always,
    as long as I’m living,
    my Mommy you’ll be.
    You are the best mother and grandmother that anyone could ever have. You always wanted to fly like a seagull and swim like a seal; and now you are together with Dad, the dapper Frenchman and love of your life. You touched so many lives and everyone who ever met you thought you were a wonderful and special person. I will be forever in your debt for all the wonderful things you taught me, including being a die-hard Red Sox fan and to love completely, especially family.
    Love,
    Bob
