Dear Neva, I will miss you. You will never know how much I valued your friendship. I am so sorry that your grandchildren will not have you as they grow. That they won't know your wisdom and kindness. That they won't know that you were always a soft and safe place to land.

I wish you Godspeed and peace and all the things you went without so your family and friends could have more.

I know it will be hard for all who will miss her but she will be with her babies and brother Mike and in the loving arms of the God who gave her the strength to be the person we loved.
