    Ardy was a wonderful lady. Quick witted, tell you how it is regardless if you liked what she had to say or not. I loved this woman. She was like a 2nd Mom for me. Knowing her for 28 years of my life. Being the Geandmother to my 2 boys, Jacob and Jonathan and Great-Grandmother to Clarabelle and William. She will be truly missed by all who knew her. I know I will miss our conversations and the laughs we shared. Fly high like an Eagle Ma. Let the wind take you to sights you've never seen. Keep watch over us all and guide us. I will cherish the memories I have with you. I love you Ma.
