There is not a single day that goes by that I do not think about Ina, and miss her. It is heartbreaking to realize that she is gone from this earth forever, and I am always thinking of things that I want to share with her, and can never ever do anymore.
Trying to put into words how much I miss Ina is just so hard, almost impossible to do. There is no way to describe all of the wonderful attributes of such a much-loved person as Ina was, and always will be in our hearts.
Ina and I have been friends for almost four years, ever since she and I became friends on a forum that we both belonged to.
When she got her first iPad, she had no clue how to work it, I gave her my phone number, and this started several months of phone and online iPad tutoring, and through this we became good friends.
After Ina's husband, Michael, passed away, we talked almost every day because Ina was going through so much pain, and in the spring of 2015, she and Izzy made the trip out to Alabama and spent a week visiting Bobby and I .
Through the years, we became almost like sisters, and her beautiful character always shone through everything that Ina said and did. She had an immense love for her family, and did everything that she could to help anyone who needed or asked for help. Even when she was fighting her way through terrible depression and illness, her heart and mind was still centered on taking care of her family, and also her friends.
I was in no way prepared to lose such a dear friend, and especially so suddenly, and I know that it must be so hard for all of Ina's family right now, too.
Ina was a rare treasure that God allowed us to share for a while, and even though she is now gone from our lives, she will always live on in our hearts, and I am gladdened to think that she is now in heaven, happily spending eternity with her beloved Husband and Sons who were there waiting for her at heaven's door.
