    When I see a picture of you or hear your name, I can hear your laugh and I smile. I will keep your memory close to my heart. I will cherish the funny stories and the silly songs you taught me as a child. I have the best memories of you and my mom laughing and enjoying life as it was meant to be even though you left me behind at Cornwall Park after I fell out of the backseat of the car (you did come back for me after the laughter stopped). My heart goes out to Sally, Trev and Troy, I am so sorry for your loss.

    My heartfelt condolences to the Pazaski family. It was many years ago I met and treasured your Mom. For a while in my teenage years, being a brat, I wished she was my mom. Now, of course, I don’t feel that way, but that was how much she touched me. I regret not seeing her in the last couple years.
    I see how her faith has sustained her, Sally, my best buddy from high school, and how that faith has infused your life with depth and harmony. I’m so sorry for your loss; she was a great Mom and I know you will miss her forever until reunited again. I love you Sally. Judy Booth
