“Let this be a loving reminder that someone is missing today, someone our hearts still hold on to, as we travel along life’s way. Someone who made life so special for all those who gather here. Someone who won’t be forgotten but cherished year to year. And now as we pause to remember, let us all fondly recall, how dearly each of us loved her and oh how she loved us all.” Your loving family
