My Dear Aunt Arlene,
It breaks my heart to know I can't laugh, talk about the people we shared in our lives again and just to look at your beautiful face because you've left us. You've had much more than your share of life's challenges and grief and I know for certain you're in a much better and happier place, Heaven. I'm also sure you are resting in peace which you so deserve. I'm sure my mom, dad and all the other family members greeted you with all their love. You're missed more than you'd probably ever think you would be and that goes along with all of us who loved-still do-you with all our hearts. Bye for now.
