“Bye all! I just wanted to let all my wonderful friends know I am off on my next adventure. I am meeting up with the Love of my life Bill; my youngest daughter, Terry; and my brother Ted. I will miss all of you but know I am always there in you hearts as you have been in mine, Carol, we have always had a special relationship and we have made some wonderful memories. I love you more than you will ever know, and I can’t say it enough but thank you for all you have done for me, especially over the last couple of years. I know it wasn’t easy, but I also know I wasn’t easy either. “E pili ma una pomaida’l ia ‘oe. Aloha Wau la ‘oe.” May blessings ever be with you. Goodbye I love you.

Carol and family, we adored your mom. She was our neighbor but more importantly our friend. She had a knack for conversation and had a great listening ear. She was always encouraging and honest. Vicki taught me firsthand how to make crepes, and passed on the BEST cobbler recipe which she happily shared her nectarines for using. We enjoyed her and loved her dearly.
