You have always been dear to me and for nearly 40 years have been as a mother to me. Though we may have been mikes apart at time there was always a wonderful reunion we our paths crossed. We will one day meet again, until then may you enjoy the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are missed

Love you
