It was through a friendly game of poker with the girls in May 2003, that I had the pleasure of meeting my dear friend. Our last game with her was just Feb 28th! Through the years our love and friendship grew strong, sharing many stories and a few quarters! Heaven received a beautiful 😇 angel. Love to all of her friends and family!
