Willis may God give you strength everyday to cope, reflect with a smile and grieve as much and as long as you need. I am still traveling this road daily. When you loose your spouse, a part of them goes with you. I will keep you guys in my prayers. Brenda and I had a sister bond since we were little kids. We spoke weekly on the phone and every time I was in Gary she made time to spend a day or two with me. I will always love, remember and miss her.
