Dear Kathy, Elaine, Diane, Joshua and families,
Our sincere condolences on the loss of your Mother and Grandmother. She was such a wonderful person with such a gentle soul. She was the best Godmother and Aunt that anyone could ask for and I had the honor of calling her mine. I know your hearts are hurting but be reassured she will always be right there watching over all of you with her beautiful purple wings.
Love Cousins, Lu-Ann and Tony
