Years of laughter and love

I remember always feeling like I could be myself at your house—whoever that was. Your mom made everyone feel welcome and loved us where we were in life.

I remember her joking and chatting with us about things other parents I spent time with wouldn’t—like sex. I remember her letting us all stay up all night and laugh loudly and being up to host way too many of your friends.

I am so sorry for your loss, Shanté. Thank you for those years of laughter and love.
