           “ While living at the Weldon, my mother could always be found sitting in her apartment in her wheelchair in front of her monitor or out in the hall by the fish tank, waiting for friends and family.(especially if they brought their dogs) My mother never forgot my first love, William Powers, ad would always ask, “Have you seen Billy?” Then I met Kurt, my soul mate, best friend and real true love. She loved him so much, he was the greatest son-in-law to her. She still talked about him and missed him so much. God took their lives away to soon, within three years, which leaves our family so broken hearted. Now they are all together in heaven. Always loved—never forgotten!”
