We lost a sparkle in this world, one everyone could see, even from far away. I'm so thankful I was able to see her one last time, hug her tight, pray with her, and give one last act of love while she was here on earth. Her circle is complete and we have wonderful memories with her that I'll hold precious for the rest of my life. I´ll miss her and her precious smile...And so many will miss her compassionate presence. Rest sweet Aunt Alta
