She laughed sooo much. That smile was beautiful . Her heart so big. I'm am honor to have had her as a friend. Through all those  school yrs ( volleyball, track .) As adults two Comets met up again in Manchester. Worked together,  laughed soo much. She was smart, funny,  so beautiful, and had an
 amazing work ethic. She was very proud of her family, and the love she had for them all was always on display. I will miss you my friend. ❤️
God bless you all.  Love Eileen
