I honestly cannot wrap my brain around this profound and awful truth. I miss you more every single second. I love you with all that I am, and I thank you with every ounce of my moral fiber for everything you did, sacrificed, fought through, gave, and taught me. Give my love to Bub and grandpa, and the rest. Until me meet again. Xoxo

I only met her a couple of times, but even before having been introduced, I could tell by the softness of her smile that she was a kind and genuine woman that others were blessed to know. I pray for peace and comfort for all of those grieving her loss.
