The service yesterday was just so beautiful. It was an honor to share this with your family. It was so good to see everyone. I am touched too that Mr. Boon is at the same cemetery as my Mom and Dad so I will be able to visit him when I go see them. All of the family are so very special to me. Please let Herbert and I know if you need anything at all. Sometimes we have to love them enough to let them go but they are forever in our hearts with our memories.
