Hope was a very special person. I have know her all my life she was like a mom. I was always welcomed in her home and parties that she had. I wish I could have seen her before she passed but I know how hard that is on family. I thank her family for being like family to me and I'm very glad to know all them. I love and cherish all the memories we have shared together.
