There has not been one time in my entire 45 years that you have not been in my life. We were not blood, but we are family. I was fortunate to have you in my life. You had such an incredible sense of humor. Truly, the funniest moment in my life involved you, me, Nancy, the pond, a boat and of course...the golfcart! "What's the worst that can happen"? Your memory will live on through the endless stories that we will tell over and over again. The sayings you so cleverly came up with will be passed on through the generations at the Maples. My children's children will know who you were. You made such a huge impact in so many of our lives. You will be sorely missed and never, ever forgotten. Chrissy
