May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. May the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, May the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand.

God Bless Lass.

I heard you arguing at the Pearly Gates Sunday morning. I know you got in though. God knows a good, kind person when he sees one. (You will have that place in order in no time!)

I am so proud of the courage you showed us all. You deserve the peace, love and happiness I know you are finally experiencing.

I love you and I miss you terribly! I will be talking to you soon and, say "hi" to everyone up there for me.
