My heart broke Saturday when I heard the news but there isn't a doubt in my mind about where you are right now. "Dancing on the streets of gold"... I'll never forget you piling us into that big old station wagon and heading out for the day, or how you allowed Carol & I to waste all the gas in the grass cutter riding around the yard pretending we were picking up Stevie and Joey or how you never once let it cross your mind to tell us that we were horrible singers as we pressed play on that Mariah Carey cassette tape & danced around Carols room singing at the tops of our lungs. You truly were a beautiful woman & I am so thankful I had the pleasure of being in your company for the time that I did. Carol, Brittney & Mr. John my heart aches for you and I am so sorry for your loss. Remember her for the woman that she was because she sure did love you all very much. 11/13/2013 Posted by: Linda Martin My deepest condolences to the family.
