We are sorry to hear of your loss. We do however cherish the wonderful memories of our time spent with such a wonderful spirited woman. Our prayer is for the strength of the family as you adjust to her transition from the body - to be present with the Lord. We thank God for her life on earth and her love she shared with many.
