The love and nurturing she extended to her family and friends is irreplaceable and a blessing to everyone she came to know, two legged and four legged, and is one of the bright spots remaining from the life she lived.

There are no words to express the loss we are all experiencing but we celebrate her place in heaven and are rejoicing in the immense love she bestowed on each of us. We are richer beyond belief for having her in our lives and knowing she will always be watching over us.
