at age 77
I was given the gift of life, love and laughter, and now it is time to give it back. Giving, caring and loving is what I did best. This is hard. But I am so lucky to have a beautiful daughter who was my best friend from the day she was born. I always told her to tell others she was my sister not my daughter. “Didn’t ever want to age myself”. Don’t get me wrong we had our ups and downs, but we always knew that we had just each other and it allowed us to lean hard on each other for everything and anything that got in our way. No matter what the challenges were we always overcame them together that is what mother/daughter “best friends” do best.
Lisa blessed me with the biggest gift of life she made me a “Nina” (didn’t want grandma to ever come up) remember didn’t want to age myself. She birthed the most amazing twin boys.
Justin and Taylor are the reasons for me staying as long as I did. They gave me the courage to breath every single day. They let me embrace their love and watch them grow into the the most amazing men. For this I am thankful. I will continue to keep, my daughter and “my boys” strong and happy! I will continue to watch Jurassic Park and any other shows that Taylor suggests. I will continue to cuddle you both and give you rubies even when you don’t want them. I will continue to tell Justin to stop biting his nails. And to find what makes you happy every single day. Don’t make me worry about you, You are such an amazing person with such wonderful gifts to offer others. Don’t ever doubt yourself. You are my pride and joy! Taylor I promise to take care of all of the animals in heaven for you and I promise not to swear in this beautiful place. You have touched my life and others beyond my wildest dreams. You are my gift and I yours!
I will take care of all of you now trust me with this. You might even get lucky and I will send those winning lottery numbers.
And to one of my favorite people in this world is my brother “Bubba” who has been my rock and the best companion, to the very end you were right by my side always positive and uplifting the best part of the day was you. I can’t thank you enough for being my brother and being there for me. You are so strong and full of life. “You’ve got this”. Now you must lean on my people and hold Lisa up when she falls down. I enjoyed going down memory lane with you and for you always reminding me of my life and how full it truly was. I knew you came back for a reason, our time together which was so well spent. Don’t stop getting all you can eat fish and that Jet’s pizza!
Now for my family and friends that have touched my life in so many ways. You all know who you are. You all know I love all of you every second, minute and hour until I see you again! Love Ya, Mikki (smiley face)
Lisa will be having a celebration of my life. (Date and time listed below) This will be a time for everyone to share together. You all know she will want you to bring a picture and a story to share. Don’t lie about the stories-I am open for some good laughs.
Fashion and Interior design and the love for gardening were my passions and of course “Nice Shoes” but most of all I loved being loved.
Please don’t be sad but yet be happy because I am walking again and dancing with a full set of lungs and I have the will and desire to feel the beat of “Chicago” under my feet. I am so blessed because Stanley brought the T.V. guide.
To my mother- You are my everything, sexy, witty, talented and beautiful from the inside out. I am me because of you! Thank you for allowing me to care for you. Love you Lisa xo
Thank you for giving me all of you. I am sure that Brian Sipe still thinks about the locker room kiss- your daisies will continue to bloom in me.
Your polish nurse.
Open house (please come celebrate a wonderful woman's life)
