Our Sincere Condolences

To the family, I am sorry for your loss. Thank you for all the love and kindness that you gave her in her illness.
My sweet friend is at peace. I will always remember what a kind good person she was and her laugh. We had fun together, and commiserated together. We got to do some of the things we wanted to do after retirement, until her illness became overwhelming to her.
