    My sweet sister in Christ, it has been an honor and a blessing knowing you for so many years you and your sweet husband have enhanced my life with many fond memories of meeting in my salon over haircuts conversation and lots of fun and laughter I have always loved you and I want you to know you will be terribly missed! But we have to remember that eternity time moves as a twinkling of the eye and very soon we will all be together again! Enjoy dancing the streets of gold, most of us are jealous! Cannot wait to see the face of my savior! We have to remember that the sorrow is with those of us left behind, those that have gone on have no sorrow and no pain just joy and eternal happiness! I love you dear sister!
