I will remember you with a smile. I will remember you with love. I will remember how much you loved your children and their friends. You welcomed me into your family as I was growing up and I felt at home in your home.

I share your family’s sadness as they say goodbye. May they always feel your presence and love.

With deepest sympathies,
Carol Hawkey
