My dear friend, you put up a valiant battle and I was thankful every time I saw you. You were one of my first coworkers at the old Ellenville Foods way back when we were young. Then again at Peters Market we reconnected as friends. I am thankful for all the hugs I received from you even when you were so weak. I will miss you.
