    My sweet Lala, The first day I met you at the Legacy, we hit it off straight away and became family almost instantaneously! I enjoyed every waking moment with you! We laughed, we joked, we cried, but I most of all, I will always remember the big smile on Steve’s face every time he laid his Irish eyes on you! He truly loved you, and you definitely knew how to put him in his place when he was having one of those days; but we would just laugh amongst ourselves, and it didn’t take him long to laugh along with us! Every time I see Dr. Pepper, I will always think of you my beautiful Lala!!! Rest in peace…I love you! ❤️
