To my sweet sister-in-law I will miss your beautiful smile and your kind ways. I love talking to you about Jim when he was a baby and all the stories about Lloyd and all the things he used to do. We would laugh till we cried . He was a trip and loved you so much I know you are in his arms again smiling with that beautiful smile with him. I will miss you my dear sister-in-law.
