Robbie, Billy & Family-

My heart goes out to you all for the loss your experiencing: your mom was such an amazing woman; not in traditional conformity but in modeling for each of us how to do it "our own" way! I smiled, after the intensity of hearing of her passing subsided, thinking of the symbolism of her transitioning on the fourth of July. It was such a clear representation of her taking her independence back!
The world is certainly a bit lonelier without her in it, but she has joined a group of beautiful people, who I know, are ecstatic about having her with them.
She also created and left some awesome people here with us who will carry her warm and loving spirit!
Praying for God's peace and sustainment through this time!

Love you all,
