Words are sometimes empty and meaningless, although spoken in love and compassion. But, do know, from the heart I feel the emptiness and heartache of saying good-bye for now. And, I'm praying for comfort for you and Ed, as well as the other family members. She's now in eternal peace and joy. Love you. Cindy.
