To my nieces and nephew. I am so sorry for the loss of your mother and my dear sweet sister. I will miss our talks and laughing together. She was such a sweet, caring and giving person. Always willing to help someone. I am going to miss her special food dishes, especially her fruit salad. I Love her so much and this is so hard for me and I know it's hard for you all. I will keep you and all of us in prayer so that we may get through this together. I Love you all and I am here for you.
