Ardelle you have been such a part of my life for many years, from being yelled at by the boss at the bus garage for using radio as a phone, to breakfast at Mike's diner, country dancing nights, and our candle parties ,and Steve Cadalso's favorite our lingerie parties..I will miss you so much. I will treasure the talks we had before your illness took you away, then the time came when talking and remembering things became to hard, we watched TV, ate PB&J, played with the fur kids. Thank you for letting me be your friend, and being a part of your family. I'll make sure to kick Neils ass when he needs it,. Good by my friend..love you much, and here's a kiss on your forehead I gave you everyday....
