My heart aches for the pain you all are feeling with the loss of this beautiful soul that you all loved dearly. Remember what she did to make this world a better place and look forward to the day you all will be joined together for eternity. Care for each others as she cared for you, remember what she taught you about love and life and, most importantly, carry on the remainder of your lives as she would want you to.
My heart and prayers are with all of you.
