Vivian, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your sister. I know you loved her so much and she was so missed when she had to go into the home. I am out of town with my brother as he now has cancer. But I wanted you to know that my prayers are with you at this time. I know we will see her again it just leaves a big hole in our hearts until we do. God bless you and your family at this time.
