    Please accept our deepest sympathies and love. I am so sorry I couldn’t get to your mom’s services, I’ve been down with pneumonia and a sinus infection.
    Knowing auntie is not suffering any more puts my heart at peace. I kept in close touch with knowing how she was doing every day. May she rest now at peace in the arms of the angels. She will be missed very much. I’m so happy my heart is filled with memories of growing up close with my aunties.
    Love to you all. Be well .
