    Steve,
    We send to you and your family our deepest condolences. Please know she will be with you all always and will be waiting at the Rainbow Bridge when the time comes. She is now at peace and walking in the sunshine of God’s Garden.
    If you need anything at all, please don’t hesitate to ask. When we lost my mom, a beautiful memory quilt was made for me out of some of my mom’s clothes by Brian’s 3 Aunts.
