“A life well-lived is a precious gift of hope and strength and grace from someone who has made our world a brighter, better place. It's filled with moments sweet and sad, with smiles and sometimes tears, with friendships formed and good times shared and laughter through the years. I’m so very sorry for your loss! May you find peace in the sweet memories! I only met your dad, husband briefly. But in those few hours he found such joy in his beautiful wife and family! He looked at and spoke about each of you girls with such love and pride. May you all feel his loving presence throughout your lives!
