You have always had patience like a saint, and spoke with so much love, this community and our family have looked up to you and your never-ending compassion towards others. We’re so happy you and Grandpa are back together, and you are no longer in pain. Thank you for loving us and never judging us or turning us away. We love you so much and will carry the lessons you have shared near and dear to our hearts and attempt to not only remember them, but to live them.
