    I’m so glad that I saw this. I think that I almost missed it.
    Absolutely gorgeous picture of her and the words fit her to a T.
    I’m so fortunate to hold so many precious memories of her and the whole family.
    You’re all always in my heart. May all of your fondest memories stay with you forever and guide you through this most difficult time.
