My heart and prayers have been with you all during this time. I hope you know how much love and respect I have for this wonderful lady and her family. I always went to see her when I was home and know how she loved you all. I wanted you to know I’m there in spirit and grieving but rejoicing for her to be free and happy with the love of her life.
