She loved laughing, having a good time and cruising with some good music. She also enjoyed on occasional ride on a motorcycle. She always gave it her all in everything she did. She loved her family with all she had and fought hard to stay here with us. She has been sick awhile but last October 2020 they decide to find out what was hurting her. They found a mass of ovarian cancer that grew on her small intestine. She had many battles from then on. In May they tried to fix her small intestine after several attempts; finally closed her up, only for a new hole to form. She decided to come home to be with us. She went to Heaven August 19th 2021. She was truly a blessing to anyone who met her and she will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting her. She was greeted in Heaven by many family members and gets to be with her late husband Matthew Hopewell who passed in 2010, also her Grandson Mori Garica, niece Christina Carlson and brother in law Franc Hopewell and her Grandparents C.L. Askin and Shirley Askin, as well as her Hogue Grandparents and several Aunts and Uncles.
Hi Mom, I am really missing you. You are my best friend. I love you very much. Thank you for teaching me not to care what other people think and to shine bright in your own way. You are the strongest woman I have ever known. When are you coming to visit me to tell me how beautiful heaven is? I’m going to be okay. I just have to climb this mountain of sadness and loss of your love. I know you are watching over me now and I have the most bad ass guardian Angel now. I look forward to the day I can hug you again and talk to you about everything you weren’t here for as time goes by. Thanks for bringing me into this world and loving me through all my crazy. Fly high with the Angels. Til we see each other again.
We loved you fiercely. As often as you scared the life out of me, you made me laugh with your spirit. The world is a smaller place without you in it.
To my distant cousins thoughts and prayers to you all now. Much love your cousin William Askin
