My sympathy to the family of Siggi. I just learned today that she had passed away. Siggi was a good friend, and was such a big help to me when I was in charge of the Crossroads Urban Center Bazaar, from our Church. Also we enjoyed her in our Naomi Cicle, when she was able to come. We will miss her.

As you come home to your family, there is a time when you will see all of yours. As your guardian angel, I saw you as a baby, then a child, grow up into a young woman and then to a lovely wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Your family and friends will surely miss you and your wonderful spirit. There will always be a presense missing but we will see you again. As your guardian angel we see you again up here as a family reunion for those who have gone before you. So for now, we will meet you again.
