    Am saddened of seeing passing of another Angel
    whom got home as well to be with Jesus as no pain to bear, no burdens to share and no more tears will be no more!! My you at this darkest moment
    that comfort all and that weep she says as her touching is now upon you with
    knowing you were very good to her.
    In very warm felt sorrow,
