Dear Mom- I am so sorry we were unable to finish your "bucket list". I know how badly you wanted that hot air balloon ride. It was a great honor and privilege being by your side these last few months. We cried a little but we sure did LAUGH a lot. I know you are soaring higher and further now than any balloon ride could ever take you. Before daddy passed away he said he'd throw us a "penny from heaven" to let us know he was in a better place. So mom take that balloon ride higher than the stars and shower us with pennies from heaven. My memories of our times together will last forever. I love you and will miss you from the deepest part of my heart. Your Loving Daughter, Jan

Even though I know her for a short moment it feels like forever I will never forget you the impact you made on my life . I will forever miss you love ,Terriyona aka little girl .

Girls, sorry to hear about your mom. I still remember how she welcomed us with a gift when we built our house on Washington Rd. and how on Christmas morning I would go over to your house and she would "show" me how to play ping pong. She had that competitive spirit. Both of your parents were special to me. The Best, Andy Mozelak

Kim Krampitz Dougherty

My sympathies to all of you. I remember your Mom throwing the best birthday parties! She was always so welcoming and cheerful. In true phys ed fashion, she fed us snacks of carrots and celery sticks--no junk food! She provided many,many rides to gymnastics--of course, with a few errands along the way! What a great lady, will miss her so much. Love, Kim
