Although I never had the honor of meeting you, I felt I  knew you through Brenda and Erin. They spoke to me about your sense of style, grace and individuality. I know your life was happy and blessed. How lucky you family was and is to be able to walk in the world for you now.
May your new journey be as wonderful as your life here on earth has been. 
My sincere sorrow and prayers to you and your family  I’m fortunate  to know.
