Dear Uncle Ted,
We are so sorry for the loss of the love of your life. She is no longer hurting and is in a better place with her daughter, parents, other family members, and friends. She made it to be the big "90," and to 2020!! She always remembered us with homemade beautiful craft items she made for Christmas which are placed all over my house for the holidays! We think of her when these beautiful items made from love by her are displayed.
As a small child I remember her and my mother, and her daughter Linda, going to see Easter bunny and going on an Easter egg hunt all dressed up in our Sunday clothes, wearing an Easter bonnet and having an Easter basket in our hands. Aunt Pearl and my mother would keep a watchful eye on both of us as we hunted for the golden eggs.
Always hold your memories of your journey together close to your heart and mind forever whenever you feel sad. You were the love of her life too and best friend. She will be watching down from heaven over all of us. We shall one day be reunited with her in heaven. Sending much love, great big hugs, prayers and blessings to you. Remember we are here for you if your need us, for we are just a phone call away. May God bless you and give your strength as you go thru this difficult time.
Margaret John-Chandler,R.N. and husband Robert Chandler
