To my dear cousins and their family,
We are so sad to hear that your loving mom is no longer with you but rejoice that she is without pain and free to walk in Gods gardens more beautiful than we can imagine. I can only imagine how she loves being rejoined with your dad, her family and with her Heavenly Father. We will be thinking of you Saturday with prayers and thanksgiving for all the wonderful family we belong. We remember her as a beautiful and loving aunt. God bless you,
