It's hard to believe it's been 30 years since you were taken from us. I don't think a day goes by that I don't think of you in some way. I know that you are always watching over us and keeping us safe.

Your children have grown into amazing adults, you would be so proud of them. You would also be proud of your five beautiful granddaughters.

I love you and miss you!
