Aunt Marine:
You have truly been an inspiration to me because you are a woman of great strength and determination which I have respected. I will miss you dearly, and hope that you will see Mom and the rest of the family when you get to personally meet our creator.
I know that you will never have to suffer again, and are truly blessed because you have great faith. Watch over us and smile everyday.
Love you and will see you when my day comes.
