Condolences to all of you — you’re such a lovely family, and wish I could hug all of you here from Florida. So sorry God gained an angel; at least she’s not in pain, but I know how you must feel. I’m totally missing her big-time, I hope you all keep strong and just have the best memories you can of her, and I send my love to all of you and praying for you.
