My Belleboo!! You sure was one of a kind!! I'll miss you and love you forever you was such a beautiful lady inside and out. You always encouraged me to stay with the Lord and everything would work out. You truly was Greg's prayer Angel and I couldn't thank you enough for the Days, Hours and Minutes you spent praying for him. I know your walking the streets of Gold with Bubbaboo now and I'm sure he was sitting on the Bench waiting on your arrival so when your drinking of the river of milk and honey think of us and watch over us May your rest in peace Angel!!!
