Todd, though you and I've only met briefly, I and my family are very good friends with your Mother, Gary, Miss Ashley, and Caden. The Love you gave to your Wife and Daughter, your Mother and all who Loved You is immeasurable.
Each and everyone will carry this special Love, with them, i know this, I saw that twinkle in your mothers eyes and personally felt the Love in her heart, it's as if she has this Aurora with her now. I know that is you, with your new beautiful set of wings, eternally with those of us still here. Until we are all together again, may you and all of your Loved Ones be at peace. Marti.
