I'm so very sorry. I know how much you loved her and I'm absolutely sure you took the best care care of her. I also know that she is rejoicing with our savior. May God comfort you at this time. I thank her for all her prayers for me and I wish I had been able to tell her that. So many conversations that we had about Christ and his promise still pop up in my mind. She definitely was very instrumental in setting a path for me even when I didn't know it. Sending many prayers and hugs to you.

Much love,
