My Steel Magnolia - we shared a lifetime of good, bad, happy and sad times together over the 40 years of friendship we have known. I can hardly imagine not talking with you and giggling together like school girls. While my heart is broken, I know you are at piece and this is not good bye, just see you later.
Much love,

Kris Montione
