I'm so very sorry you had to suffer as you did. We all are happy that you went very peaceful. The Good Lord took you in his arms and brought you to Heaven, where you don't hurt anymore. I know that Dad was there to greet you with open arms. You were very loved by your whole family
and will be rembered by many.
Enjoy your happy time in Heaven and say Hi to all the people that have left us behind.
Love you lots, Sue
