To the Foster Family,
We are so deeply sorry for your loss. For someone I've never met, her grandson, Ashton, has shared enough about her that we feel as though we know her. Without a doubt she was cherished and will be missed. We will be praying for the family she's left behind. Love & Hugs! The Raymes Family in Rock Hill, SC
