This was posted on FB by one of my teachers from High School:

She was a uniquely gifted and special woman, who had a beautiful, selfless, caregiving spirit for everyone she encountered. I, personally, am forever in her debt, for the support she gave me-- quite honestly, I didn't even know what to do with it, as her spirit was evolved so far ahead of mine at the time. But her influence was VERY substantial, and remains so today. There will never, ever, be another like her.

My sweet daughter. She is sorrowfully missed. Her smile and laughter were sometimes boisterous, but genuine. She raised a wonderful and devoted son. She had a special way with her pets; feral cats, stray dogs and wild birds.

I still can't believe you are gone. It's hard to imagine that I won't hear your voice again and that infectious laugh. Our hearts are breaking. We miss you terribly and look forward to seeing you in Jehovah's new system.

I am so terribly sad for the loss of such a sweet and thoughtful daughter, mother and grandmother. I was brought to tears with the most wonderful and heartfelt words spoke by her very Loving son Damian. We miss and love you... Always...

Our first Christmas and New years without you. I miss your wit and humor. I recall our first Christmas on Okinawa. You made a cake with brown eggs. The eggs had two yokes. You thought it was odd and threw one yoke away out of every egg.

Forever in Santa Barbara

I wanted to say thank you to my wonderful aunt Anna.  Really there have been two important (emotional) moments in our family's life when Anna has stepped in and really helped us out.  

The first was on our wedding day.  Anna was there and helped my wife with her dress and makeup before were married.  I am sure there was more to it than just how I simply stated it. but I know Michelle spoke of that moment often after we were married so it was important to her.

The second was with my mother’s passing.  Anna graciously helped by arranging our small gathering when we scattered my mother’s ashes into the ocean in Santa Barbara.  This was the hardest thing I have endured so far in my life and we are so thankful for the support we received from Anna and her husband Paul.  We really can't thank you enough for putting that together so quickly.

We are also thankful for my grandfather and his wife Virginia for being there as well as my uncle "Ben Ben".  We thank you all for your support with everything!
