Danny, Bobby and Linda,
Just read iBerkshires and saw that your mom has passed. Nothing can ever hurt your heart as much as losing a mom. Hold on to the wonderful memories you have shared with her and the love that you will forever hold in your heart. My sympathies to you all.

My deepest and sincere condolences to June's family, of whom she spoke so lovingly, through my fortunate years of knowing her. Never have I met, or enjoyed more, a woman so sweet and humble. It was such a pleasure, sharing our time at the salon. Her family was surely the focus of her existence, and the strength of her soul. I loved her as if she were family to was so easy to! May you all find peace and contentment in your fondest memories, as I know I will. Another angel, named June, has entered God's realm of glory.

All the memories running through my mind,
I cant stop them..yet then I find,
That one little memory that I somehow forgot,
coming up from that dark little hidden spot,
That will bring a smile, or a tear falling down,
and some days the same thing when waking at dawn.
I'll never forget our great one on one times,
Or gathering of family that would make your face you shine,
The brilliant smile, the tear on your cheek,
When happiness with loved ones was all that you'd seek.
I will be strong for our family and brothers,
Because Danny and Blueberry they are like no others,
As dedicated and full of love as your sons,
Send their love To you above, not just anyone.
So, although I talk to you in heaven now,
Cause that is the only way I know how,
Since you left us, all I can say,
Is that I hope I will see you another day.
I love you mom, and miss you so much...
