Veronica and Mandy, My heart goes out to you and your family. I know you all took GREAT care of her. She was a lady with a really good sense of humor and she will live on through the both of you with your senses of humor as well. I have happy thoughts of her loving her little dog and feeding it candy. She will be at rest now where there will be no sickness and she will be waiting on her family and friend to join her in that MARVELOUS home. I think of a poem tht helped me through my Dad's loss. Think of a ship at sail in the ocean, you watch it until you see it is almost out of site. Only a speck to your eyes and you say "there she goes" but on the other side. God is seeing her in the distance and is saying "here she come".There is also a song " Only gone from our sight". She may be gone from your sight but will remain FOREVER in your Hearts. Praying for ALL of you!
Love ya
Connie Adkins
