Not sure what to say?

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. And may God help comfort you.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always. Love Your Cousin, Brenda

Nancy was a fun & loving sister I spoke to her every day and I would say how are you today and her answer was always the same ." I'm Fine and Dandy", even though we new she wasn't feeling that way. She always made you smile. Love and miss her. Nancy's sister, Shirley
