This is such a sad time and its so hard to believe that your not here with us anymore. I considered you my sister-in-law and also my friend. For years we were partners in crime and had so many good times together and a few bad but when you are true friends and family thats to be expected. Thank You for all the great memories and for my wonderful niece. Say hi to Jims dad, mom and brother. Im not going to say goodbye but I will see you again someday. Love you and may you Rest In Peace. <3

There are no words to say how much i will miss you. You have been a part of my life for many years. My heart goes out to all of your family and many friends. You were the strongest person i know. You have fought this horrid disease for so long. But finally the fight is over.
May you rest in peace and not be in pain anymore. I will miss you so much. My heart is broken. It will not be easy for any of us to have to say goodbye to you today. May god take you into his arms to comfort you and may god give us the strength to ease our pain.
You may be gone but you will never be forgotten. I love you. Till we meet again.
