Sending love to you during this difficult time. I hold dear the wonderful childhood memories with the family. Will always remember picking blueberries with Mom and Elaine during warm summer days. Love to you all,

My prayers are with your family. Though your heart is aching right now, you have so many wonderful memories to bring you a smile or a chuckle and they are treasures you will never lose. The strength of your faith will sustain you and bring you comfort in the days to come. I only wish I could be with you to celebrate her life. My prayers will continue to be with your family.
