We've lost a wonderful sister and I'm so glad I seen her when she was in OH last year with Bee. I'm so sorry for the loss of a great mother, she's now in Heaven with Kelly, Mom and Aunt Lana who loved her like her own. My thoughts & prayers are with her children & grandchildren and the rest of our siblings. God Speed Char. Love forever Sis.

I send my sincere condolences to your family during this difficult time. This scripture brought me comfort when I lost a loved one and I hope it can do the same for your family. (Psalm 34:18) May God give you comfort and the strength to endure through this difficult time.
