She was also a ferocious reader.

Also nieces and nephews Magan MaGee, Erin Sellnow, Mark, Anne, and Sara Barrett, Jasen and Jessica King and their families.

For many years we were inseparable, then real adult life kicked in. We had many a fun time back in the day, camping, clubs and just hanging out at Nancy's house. I haven't seen you in quite a while and that I regret. I am so sorry that these past few years have been hard for you and Dave. Now you can rest, have no more aches and pains and forever be the wonderful friend you always were, an angel always looking over family and friends. RIP now....
