Claudia,

I don't even know the words to say I'm at a complete loss. I don't know what I am going to do without you. You were so much more to me than my sister in law you were literally my best friend. I am so glad that I came, and stayed with you for as long as I did after Jesse passed away, I will regret not staying longer for the rest of my life now. I'm so thankful for the friendship we had, all the good memories we shared, and our 10 hour phone conversations. You were always the only one there to help get me through all the tough times, I don't know how I'm going to get through this without you.
