Niece Renee',...It's hard to let go when you lose someone who meant so much, this we know. You and your family brought great joy to your mother all your life. You showered her with wonderful love and comfort over the many years you had her, so cherish those memories. We know your hearts were broken by her departure, but we hope you feel good about the way you were there with and for her.
With caring love, forever.
