Larene, I will miss our talks, I know how much you missed Cousin Audrey, and felt you were alone. You are alone no more, in pain no more.
You are free, in free indeed.
To Shari, Debbie, and the rest of our family,
My Condolences, Love, and Prayers,
If you need me you know I'm just a phone call away.
I know our hearts may be heavy, we must celebrate Larene's life and memories.
All of her accomplishments, and dreams.
Smile and remember the good times!
That's what she would want. Whenever you feel sad, remember a funny story she told, or something funny she did. It will bring a smile to your face and your heart.
Love you
Cousin Michelle
