My heart is heavy & has been since God called you home. I will truly miss your sense of humor, your willingness to always help others, your big heart of gold. You were my counselor, comedian, the best best friend a girl could ever ask for. This has really hit hard for us all. I can see that big beautiful smile looking down on us saying, don’t cry for me I’m fine.
asking God to comfort your entire family! I promise to take care of Sheena & the girls!
Love you BFF!!!

Lee & family,

Your son's at peace. Think of the good times and smile. For comfort read Ecclesiastes 3:1-15,17,19,20,22. I too buried a son, so I know how you're feeling, and the pain'll ease. May The Creator bring you peace during this time.
