My heart is sad in loosing such a kind soul so young. Your kindness, smile and joyful nature will live on in everyone’s memory. It is hard for those left behind, not knowing the grand plan and questioning why, but with family and God’s Grace life will get easier and all the blessing you brought will be the memories all will cherish. May God keep you and send His Grace to your family. If there is anything needed by the family, know that I am there for you.
