I can’t believe I am writing this but here I am….
I miss ya Maggie darlin…
Everyday i would wake up to your calls, and whether it be to come grab me for coffee or to simply gossip about the day before or go on one of your crazy adventures, and I was ALWAYS down for your adventures.

I miss your face, and I miss your voice coming into my home and the looks on my pups faces when their good friend arrived. With treats of course hahaha

You truly were gifted at making a bad situation good and helping your friends whenever they needed ya.  You were there for me when I lost my dad and you were the mum figure I needed.

I miss our laughing together and sharing our hurts to.  You will NEVER be forgotten, but you will be missed more then you know.  

See ya there on the otherside darlin’….I miss ya Maggie.

Oh Maggie, you were my best friend for over 40 years, you were my confidant and my laughing partner, now who’s going to know what I mean when I say “I like soup?”  I cannot imagine my life without you, and I hope that you’ve found the peace you were looking for.  We were going to be the rockin’ grandmas, introducing our grandkids to good old rock and roll and telling them the histories of our tattoos.  We were going to do so much, but now you will be with me in my heart, wherever I go, and I’ll make sure I tell your stories, your funny funny stories that used to make me laugh so hard I could not stop.  How am I supposed to live without you?  I’m not, that’s how, you will forever be in my heart.  Keep on shining you crazy diamond, I will be looking for you when I get to the other side.  Love and miss you Lady.  You were my heart, my conscious, my sounding board, my best friend.  Life just got a little sadder but the stars got a lot brighter.  I love you, I always will
