The world is definitely a colder place without her in it. She was a willing ear when I needed guidance the most, often my protector, & always my friend. Distance & life caused a separation but I carried her wise words & caring heart with me all my life. The kindness & love that I received from your family made me the adult I am today. I'm so sorry for your loss, I love you all always. L.
