To Michael Bontrager, long time friend
Buford, you are so greatly missed!!!! I miss your sense of humor and how
you always made me laugh and often roll my eyes. I miss happy hour with
you, your smoked fish and boat trips. Jimmy Buffet concerts, Hometown
Fair, scooter rides, bocce ball and the infamous croquet tournament. And
how could I not mention all your amazing and creative costumes!! You were
the best at dressing up! Life has not been the same without you and my
heart hurts when I see your pictures around my house or hear Jimmy Buffet.
Love and miss you Buf.

To Martina Hernandez, mother
My mother was the BEST MOM ever she was a hard worker and the most generous
women. Never had anything bad to say about anyone and she always had a
smile on her face. We always say her miniature stature didn't reflect
to the size of her heart. She loved with all her heart. I miss you so
much!!! I LOVE YOU Erma E

To Kay Ostrom, mother-in-law
Mom Kay, I have the best memory of you wearing a cute skirt and Jean jacket
asking me if you looked sassy because that was the look you were going
for. You danced around the living room in that sassy outfit showing off
your vibrant spirit. I miss your cards, texts, and calls. You were the
most thoughtful person I’ve ever known. I miss you every day.
To Michelle Acrilla, sister
To my dearest sister. We miss you everyday. You left us too early, but
I cherish all the memories we spent together. Thank you for teaching me
to be strong and to not accept anything less than what I deserve. I love
you so much always and forever. Until we meet again.
To George K., grandfather
I will always remember lobster dinners and being on your boat as a kid.
I’ll miss you’re amazing crafts and building bird houses.
Most of all, I’ll miss getting together every Thanksgiving and you
and grandma inviting someone from the homeless shelter to our dinner
To Ralph & Marjorie Kiyosaki, parents
They did their best to be great parents but Mom died suddenly at 49, always
had a bad heart. She raised 4 kids and so many people loved her. Dad lived
20 years beyond her, was a fantastic Dad and an extraordinary educator.
I will always remember them.
To John George Foster, father/grandad

and miss you, Sam and Lily xox
