    From the Commerical Vehicle Group AP team: A piece of our hearts will be warmed knowing she is in a good place, but also we will feel sad. We were the lucky ones to be allowed to spend time with her.

  • Oh the things I could write… So many things to laugh about like our song; “Disappointment Heartache, Come on Baby Don’t be late”. The time Delaware cops took you to jail and I was at the bottom of the stairs trying to talk to you while you were upstairs in a cell. The few times I got grounded because momna Grace was going to tell my mom if I didn’t. Living accross the square from you. I’m going to miss Happy Coloring with you. ‘Keep Dancing In The Sky’ girlfriend.
